The August morning dew sets heavier and takes longer to dry out here in Michigan.
So, every morning I take a small hand held leaf blower to help dry the leaves and buds. Works great. No rot, or mold. Of course proper pruning is a big factor as well.
I’ll take August morning dew over January snow or frost any day!
I love each of the four seasons we have here in Michigan. Each in turn has its unique beauty and purpose. I wouldn’t trade living here for all the pot in California.
