Seen on the news last night that with all the extra wet weather here in Pa. Many tomatoes and other garden vegies has been roting on the vines. The cause a fungus the same type that caused the great Irish potato famen brought on by extreem wet weather.

The question is how is your garden doing this year?
Mine has been way below average this year. And thay are calling for even more rain in a day or two.

Getting about 1/2 bushell of tomatoes a day. put up around 500 ears of sweet corn. Got soo tired of picking beans that I have just quit. Sweet prpper & hot pepper is bearing soo much that it breaking the plants down. Late corn is just about ready to tassle. I am about ready for a frost so I can get some rest.

all types of green beans,zuchinni,cukes and summer squash have done very well. Tomatoes are terrible,they are still all green and that's way late in the season.Onions and peppers are o.k nothing to brag about.Was in north carolina over the weekend to see my brother and got some tomatoes to make juice at the farmer's market. Guy was real reasonable got 75 lbs. for $20. thought that was an excellent price.

We had way too much rain and got the fungus on our squash pretty bad. Ended up having to pick the squash when they were still little and just make a stir-fry out of them because if we left then to get any size on 'em they would grow whiskers. Our eggplants put out one piddling fruit and the doggone ants climbed up that ONE plant getting way from the floods and attacked the eggplant before it could make. And the tomatoes only did so-so and are now dried up as we now have 100 degree days and no rain to speak of. Everything out there is history except the bell peppers, jalapenos and banana peppers.
