We had HUGE storms here last night. I don't know how much it rained, but it seems like it rained for hours. When donna checks her rain gauge, I'll give you an estimate of how much rain we got. But basically, this rainy wet weather is awful for our crops. We're having a horrid year for growing things. Because of the damp spring, we didn't finish our spring planting until July 3rd. (yes, really). None of the plants we put in the ground have actually DIED due to weather, but they are just sort of sitting there, not really growing. It's difficult to watch. (Of course, the weeds are thriving. isn't that always the way?) I'll post some pictures pretty soon, but for now, you can read this July 2008 crop update from Small Potatoes Farm, an organic CSA a few miles from us. They basically get the same weather we do, so you can see how it has affected their crops.
