Thanks. Here's an update. With over 7 inches of rain in last 22 days, more today and Thursday I'm wondering how long the green leaves will last. Very little sun has made them stretch a bit.

Tomatoes are now ranging from 17-22" tall.





Peppers



Cucumbers.



Collards



Eggplant and Bell Peppers



Onions starting to flop over but still small underneath so I'll wait a little more before harvesting. Still early.

Thanks! I like to look back myself now and in the future.

3rd wettest month on record. The rain keeps falling and the sun keeps hiding. NOT GOOD!

Over 6 inches of rain in 10 days and more today and Monday again.

as usual, my internet skills are so lacking I have no idea how to put the pics onto City Data, so ijust have to enjoy looking at everyone else's. Of course I am amazed at how few weeds I see, my garden is a good combination of weeds and veggies. My green beans (the ones the creatures haven't eaten) are all over the place and growing like crazy on the poles; my tomatoes are between good and really great, size wise and blossom wise and yes, as usual I have my share of volunteer plants, both squash and tomatoes. My peppers, in the pots just are not doing that well. They are not dying, they are growing some, but they just aren't what I had hoped. I might be expecting too much too soon. As for the squash, well the bees are hanging around so I am guessing we do have some girl blossoms mixed in with all those boys.

Cambaum: don't worry, everything will be fine. Our May was the wettest in history and one of the coolest, but we are now getting no moisture. Spring into summer is just not cooperating this year, but I think all it is doing, is slowing our gardens down.

I hope you get some sun soon!

We are having a strange spring here. May - there were days pushing 80 degrees, then June about 3 days of constant rain/showers, followed by gray days. Just in the last couple of days, we have had sunny/partly cloudy. Today is great (6/13) - sunny and not a cloud in the sky so far at 7:40 pm (AKT). Temperature = 72* (in the shade) and the sun is shining brightly in the sky.

A magnificent evening!
