My tomato and pepper plants are really suffering with all this rain and no high temps. Has this season been low yielding for everyone or is it just me. Seems like this summer has been more rainy than last year, when I had beautiful plants.

Not that it really matters, but this year we have had below average amounts of rain since April. Last summer was actually one of the rainiest on record.

This summer has been very could, pretty much in all of the area spanning from New York, to just north of NYC, all the way to Maine. It has been one of the coolest summers on record, even outside this area.

The weather has been weird. I love the temperatures, don't really like the rain much. I think I would rather settle for heat and humidity at this point.

The temps have been very comfortable, but not the rain almost everyday.

My tomato plants are not growing all that well, no. I don't think they like the cool nights.

Well, Buffalo is the 6th rainiest in the US. (I was surprised too) We have LOUSY weather here, this is pretty much normal, but we complain that it is unseasonal. Good reason to leave bmd (as if there weren't enough, right?)

wow, I didnt know it ranked top10 in the rainiest cities...that explains the rain . On a more happy note, my radishes, beets, carrots, onions and herbs are loving the weather and it also saves me from watering all of my vegetable containers.

That list is misleading. For Upstate, most of the "days with rain" are actually days with snow flurries.

In the case of Syracuse, if one flake of snow falls to ground at the airport in Syracuse, that day goes down as a day in which it snowed in Syracuse. I remember a year where the local news was tracking a streak of days when it snowed in Syracuse. It went on for almost 5 weeks or something to that effect. Yet, roughly 60% of those days when it snowed, Syracuse only had a few flurries. Wow, a trace of snow that fell in the middle of the night! How awful! Not to mention many of those snowy days were sunny for the most part.
