Bah. Last week I pulled out what is most likely our last harvest from the garden. Due to super heavy crazy freaky rains, many of the potatoes had already rotted before I got to them. Bah. I only got 2 unripe tomatoes, because SOMETHING, be it dog/cat/deer/rabbit/raccoon/zebra/neighbors who we unknowingly pissed off, has been taking ONE BITE of all the ripe tomatoes then throwing them on the ground. Nice.
So here's the latest garden status report:
Corn: Very, very dead. Wind damage.
Squash: Dead. Powdery mildew and who knows what else.
Tomatoes: Dying. Wind damage and near drowning due to crazy freaky rains.
Zucchini: Again with the dead.
The green beans and basil are still doing well. At least we'll have pesto, right? I've noticed several other failed gardens around town, so it appears I'm not the only gardener that our weather screwed over this year. Nearby areas actually had flash flooding the last two weeks.
The good news is that a nice produce stand has been set up in our tiny town, so I'll be able to buy and freeze local. But still....bah.
