The cosmos is super duper happy with the moisture and coolness. The bicolor scarlet runner beans are doing well too, thankfully as all the rest of the beans turned yellow and gave in to the wet soil.
The celery loves the moisture too! We will need to dig deep into our recipes on how to use this much...
We do have a few watermelons growing so our fingers are crossed. The winter squash is almost a complete bust...we have 3 squash growing compared to the 100+ we harvested last year. Yikes! It seems the water really, really hindered their growth and made them extra susceptible to the effects of squash bugs and squash vine borers.

The garlic, onions and potatoes are our recent good harvests. I (Jennifer) harvested 1/4 of our potatoes and...
look how many grew! Woo hoo!
On another note, we will be trekking northeast later this month for our first visit to Maine with Acadia National Park as our destination. We will get to visit with a dear friend en route and see the mountains of New Hampshire and Vermont on our way back so we are pumped. Alvin is helping us plan!
