hurricane irene was pretty much a tropical storm when it got here. however, she did point out that the top right corner of the garden is where the severest slope is. not sure how to correct this for next growing season. in order for tomatoes or potatoes to be set in, i will need to stop the soil from being washed away.
the pumpkin has 2 blossoms! i am so happy about this it's silly. am already thinking of ways to prevent neighbors from stealing my (soon to be) pumpkins.
the rest of the garden fared well with irenes' rain. do need to weed mightily though.
