I know that a lot of you are suffering from abnormal weather, be it too much rain or not enough. We (Western PA) are also having an abnormal summer. The garden is still growing OK. I've had to water it a few times, but the grass is brown and dry. The weeds don't seem to mind as much though! It's been 2 weeks since I mowed...very unusual for July here. Middle to the end of August is usually our dry, hot season. The temps have been in the upper 90's for a few days and were mid to upper 80's for 3 weeks prior, all with excessive humidity! I'm not necessarily complaining about it as I know there are some of you who are far worse off than we are and my prayers go out to all the farmers out there who are struggling with the weather. I hope that things get straightened out for them before me! I like to eat...and I love produce! No crops for whatever reason means no (or very little and extremely expensive) produce.
