We had the wettest May on record. We have had the driest of seasons. Late summer and Fall have been so dry. We have had very little to no rain for nearly three months. We have the World Equestrian Games here and the state is just brown from the drought. It's strange. The garden is nearly nothing. Without the ground table of water, watering every day is expensive and time consuming. We are watering our old over story trees to keep them from stressing too much.

I think the weather extremes are caused by global warming. This is what the climatologists believe. At first they thought that the warming trend would be good for growing vegetation. But now it seems that the extremes will compromise habitat for all of us. Let's hope for a better season next year. Let's hope these extremes are leveled out for the future.

For the record, I have some peppers, beans, tomatoes, basil, cabbage, Tithonia, cosmos, and a few zucchini. I got just a few winter squashes, which were stunted, but edible. I have hired Jackie, a gardener, for part-time help and she has spent most of her time watering our trees thus far. We will put in some free veggie plants I got today and see if the season will hold out a bit.
