Over here we are having a cool, wet spell after the mini heat-wave. This may be bad for the pepper, okra, and tomato seeds I planted out, but it is GREAT for the cool season veggies that are still kicking.

I'm especially hopeful about the snow peas! I thought I did everything RIGHT this year...I finally used inoculant, and planted TONS of seeds. I thought the heat wave was going to do them in...but now I have What like 10 BLOSSOMS. I may get 10 peas. LOL from ALL THAT WORK? I swear that is the last pack of peas I'm buying. Not worth it in our climate.

My broccoli look really wonderful, and hopefully they'll now have a chance to mature. I really love broccoli, and these are the rest of my pack of seeds. They are too challenging to grow, and need a relatively long, cool (but not cold) season...but I'd love to eat some.

Looks like the few upper 80s low 90s days in Pittsburgh last week caused my radishes to bolt. Oh well, I guess I can clear out their plot early for something else or see how the seed pods taste.

Sherwoody - Are you in OR? I'm down in Salem, and Sugar Ann snap peas are growing well for me. This is my first year trying a garden and the peas have been very easy.

Sorry! And I meant to comment to you, not sure why I put the wrong name. If it makes you feel better, my chinese cabbage has been almost entirely eaten by a mystery bug/slug!

Here we just have rain and more rain. Except for Tues, rain is predicted 50% or more for the next 8 days. I am so afraid all my hard work on the container garden is goingt to be lost. At least our farmers markets do have some fresh produce, but it isn't the same as getting it out of our own back yard.

Nah I'm sorry that your chinese cabbage is not doing well. Peas are kind of a saga with me. I've been trying to grow them for five years. LOL Each year is a failure. I can't grow sweet peas, either!

Well we finally were able to see a little sunshine yesterday so I took a look at our garden: Most everything looks like it survived the rains and our weather the next week or so will be a little dryier even though we will still have rain. It looks like we have a lot of tomato blossoms, the same with peppers and the beans are huge. Our herbs are doing well. and our squash is ok, but not growing fast. The only thing I am sad about, it looks like our cukes completely drowned. The water is just sitting in the containers and the plants, that were beautiful just a week ago are all turning yellow. I might just buy a few already started plants. or I will just say goodbye to them this season.

I'd just buy the cukes this close to hot weather. They like a moderate weather. Seems like they get bitter once it gets really hot. I never got my seed started as it went from really cold to hot in a hurry.
