|The Daily Bucket is a regular feature of the Backyard Science group. It is a place to note of any observations you have made of the world around you. Insects, weather, meteorites, climate, birds and/or flowers. All are worthy additions to the bucket. Please let us know what is going on around you in a comment. Include, as close as is comfortable for you, where you are located. Each note is a record that we can refer to in the future as we try to understand the patterns that are quietly unwinding around us.
Castro Valley, CA
Continued below the orange coprolite
This is an emergency empty bucket, so observations are definitely needed.
Castro Valley is cooling a bit from a recent hot spell, but there have been no abrupt changes of any kind in the local natural world. My grapes are turning color, and I'm not sure if that is early or not, and our tomatoes are still not turning red, but our watering cycle has become chaotic, which might be having that effect.
"Spotlight on Green News & Views" will be posted every Saturday and Wednesday at 1:00 pm Pacific Time on the Daily Kos front page. Be sure to recommend and comment in the diary.
Now It's Your Turn What have you noted happening in your area or travels? As usual post your observations as well as their general location in the comments.
