This has been a tricky garden season.
Firstly, the spring was very very cool for our area. April came and went and it still was too cool for many things. Then May came, with finals and so forth, which meant I wasn’t in the garden too much – and it was still cool. And then came June, and it hasn’t stopped raining.
We had 8 inches of rain alone LAST WEEK. Our summers are usually hot and dry. Not this year.
SO – the tomatos are unhappy, and are suffering from disease. Ugg.
The kale is now done – eaten into a lacy mess by some insect.
There are some upsides to all this:
Oh, and besides the fact that we have had a ton of rain – we are supposed to get another 2 – 3 inches in the next couple of days, and THEN maybe Hurricane Chantal may come our way as well. Hmmm. Time to start dreaming of fall gardening.
