The Influence of the Pacific Currents on Tra Que’s Climate
Tra Que’s climate is highly influenced by the cooling effect of the Pacific Ocean. When the effect of the cold current hits coastline it produces clouds and fog, but little or no precipitation, which then contributes to making the soil getting driest!
The cool sea air is enhancing all the herbs and Vegs, although it finds its way inland by following the course of the transversal rivers.
During the day, sea breezes carried by the cold Current penetrate inland, and each night, cold air descends from the coast line- covered the whole garden.
Ideal Pacific Ocean Climate
Tra Que’s Pacific Ocean climate features the warm, dry summers and cold, rainy winters that herbs love. Even better, the interaction between the effects of the sea and those of the rivers such result in a growing season that revels in bright sunny days and temperatures that take a dramatic dip each night to create the broad daily temperature oscillation that herbs and vegs need to develop fresh fruit flavors, crisp acidity, and in the case of healthy herbs, vegs, aroma, deep color, and high levels of antioxidants and vitamins
Cool Day Long on the Coast
Anyone who’s ever had a dip in the Pacific Ocean knows that it is cold! And when it smacks up against the c oast it makes its presence known. It blankets the land with a thick cool fog each morning and then blows it away again by noon to allow the bright sunshine… just the type of conditions those cool-climate herbs and vegs such as Lemon Basil, Mints, Fish Mint, Garlic Chives, and lectures. Corianders thrive on. Whichever direction you look, Tra Que’s highly diverse geography and beneficial climate makes Tra Que the Logical Choice in Herbs and Vegetables for today’s consumers who demand high quality and ecologically sound practices.
