Yesterday our area broke the previous record for rainfall in June. Now 2015 is the wettest on record.
I'm thankful that our neighborhood isn't affected by the flooding the low-lying areas are experiencing. However, between the critters and Mother Nature my garden isn't looking so good. Just a couple of days after the plants went in the ground, something ate the top off one of the pepper plants, then came back for another plant later in the week. Next they went after the eggplant leaves, leaving just a stub in the ground where I had envisioned picking large shiny fruits.
Now my plot consists of one sad-looking pepper plant at one end of the area and four tomato plants clustered at the other end. Because of all the rain the plant leaves are turning yellow, and the lack of sun is keeping the tomatoes from growing. If it stopped raining and dried out I think the plants might have a chance, but the weather app on my phone shows that there's a chance of precipitation every day for the next ten days.
