Daylight Savings Time Change Effect On Gardening

Anyone see any effects of having more daylight savings time on gardening? I told my wife that my tomatoes would probably ripen slower, and she said to get a new watch.

Not a bad idea Tom. Get a sundial watch or garden ornament. Us humans think we matter a whole lot but I'd imagine light, temp, wind, and the micro climates mean more to tomatoes and plant life. Also note if the plants fail so do the other folks in the food chain.

I saved a bunch of daylight in a glass jar once, but I dropped the thing and darned near blinded myself. Since then, I've saved my daylight only in plastic containers.

For a start the extra daylight will fade your curtains, the cows will give less milk and the chooks will lay less eggs. As well trolls will call at your door more often.

Just think what might happen if you had potted tomatoes and took them across the international date line.

More people might consider this a valid point than you would suppose. I was listening to a radio talk show on the Daylight Savings Time change and whether or not Canada should follow the States' lead. Anyway, someone phoned in to ask whether the solstice on June 21 would be affected, and if daylight on that day would last for the same period of time. The host was at a loss for words, for once.

I've never liked DST, it sucks big time and should be done away with.
