While gardening this afternoon, I found a tomato growing on one of my plants, and the potatoes are pushing through the surface!

I pulled a Red Husky Tomato and ate it. It was super sweet.

With the rain showers, flooding, heat and humid the plants are surviving. I ate another red ripe tomato different variety which was also sweet.

Our container herbs, peppers, miniature tomatoes and egg plants continue to produce well.

Some of the larger gardens have an abundance of water this season therefore causing water log. I used the raised bed planting method and I am hoping that my plants survive and produce.

Mary L, if you are overwatering, generally the leaves will turn black and let you know they've had enough already!!

We've been enjoying heirloom tomatoes from one of my plants for about a month now. They are ripening slowly, so we are able to keep up with the "crop" and not have too many to inundate our neighbors with.

Basil is producing nicely and I'm making pesto from it and freezing it in ziplock bags.

My peppers are growing slowly this year, which is surprising because we've had an unusually hot June. Can't wait for them to get a bit larger. I know I can use them as babies, but I'd rather wait until they're larger.

A report from the Coopetative Extensive Service issused this statement. Wet conditions have contributed to fungus blight on tomato and potato plants and fungus on some berry and grape plants in some home gardens. Meanwhile, the rains have accelerated early tomato production.
“This blight is something you usually do not see until late in the summer." “It is expensive to treat this with chemicals in a small garden. Using proper sanitation and air flow may help more. You may just have to enjoy the tomatoes you get and count on the local farmers to bring out more.”
Some experts say growing and harvesting will be at least three weeks later than normal and yields will suffer.
Thunderstorms were present Sunday.

I put herbs  around the vegetable plants to deter unwanted pests. I put a Master lock  on the Gate to keep two legged thieves out. I have a camera somewhere also.
