Summer Solstice in the Western Hemisphere (For the Year 2018)
The 2018 Summer Solstice began in this hemisphere a few hours ago (EST). It is the longest day of daylight, as many of you know. I know of professional gardeners who do not like this day because going forward, every subsequent day it will turn darker and darker at an earlier hour.
Therefore, they prefer the Winter Solstice, which is the darkest day of the year and every subsequent day it turns lighter and lighter at an earlier hour.
What are your thoughts on the Summer and Winter Solstice, dear reader?
