We got rain for nearly four days this week. At the risk of sounding ungrateful it might have been a bit too much rain. The temperatures were in the 40's to 60's range and it was just a bit miserable. While the entire state badly needed this rain because of our extremely high fire danger, my garden did not. Sadly some of my cucumber plants have perished from damping off (rotted through the stems at ground level) and some of the tomato plant leaves ended up looking like this...
The tomatoes will be fine and outgrow the damage. I'll admit though that when I saw it yesterday I was having a little bit of a tizzy. These plants really need to provide us with a good harvest this year and if I had lost them I would have been heartbroken.
On another note, in the greenhouse I have my very first broccoli heads!
Here are pictures of the rest of the garden today:
Now that everything is so well watered, all we need is some good sun and heat, something that we have not had in nearly a week. I personally am loving the temperature but my heat loving plants have not put on any new growth since last week. Not ideal.
I think I will skip a week of updating so there will be more of a change next time. Everything seems so bare in the barn garden pictures!
