July rains bring...

dead tomato plants for starters. mold and rot mold and rot. Luckily we weren't here for a month of rain rain and more rain...My husband's baby trees down by the river were submerged
These are the bigger trees by the river at the beginning of August
And yesterday (normal) from a slightly different angle, but you get the idea.
(I think these two naked teenagers actually stole this boat, but I didn't have the nerve to confront them.)
The pumpkin vines were also under water. That one pumpkin you see in this photo rotted. Luckily the pumpkins survived and are doing great!

Wow, you got a lot of rain, hey? Have you tried the little tunnel thing over the tomatoes? We did it this year and not even any split tomatoes. I was very sceptical but I think I'm a convert!

My husband said everything got moldy, the tatami, the high chair, everything. So glad we weren't here. And hardly anyone's tomatoes survived, not even those with tents, but I will definitely have to try to talk my husband into it next year. He was put off by the initial cost.
