Well, here we are in mid-July, and it’s been quite an interesting summer so far…. What a year to start a huge, brand new garden! With almost non-stop rain for the past 6 weeks, this is unlike any summer I have ever seen before, but apparently most of the plants are enjoying all the water.

Although I thought I gave them plenty of room when planting, they seem determined to spread ever further into each others’ personal space. Constant staking and tying is the order of the day, but I can never seem to keep up with it.  After a somewhat slow start, with lots of blooms but no fruit, they are suddenly so heavily laden with tomatoes that I can’t even keep their cages and stakes upright!
