It's been the coolest, rainiest spring and early summer I can remember. It's rained almost every day for almost three weeks and the temps are staying in the 60's and 70's. I'm afraid at this rate we won't be harvesting our tomatoes until September or October! My poor maters and peppers are hardly growing at all in their choice spot. Same thing with my other annual plants. *sigh*

I'm not that far away up here in mich., but I gotta say my tomatoes are thriving.This is my first year at this home, but my tomatoes are all well-above my knees(and I am pretty tall...)I'm looking forward to one of my best years.
I am having trouble with all my pepper plants. The leaves are turning yellow with brown spots and falling off. A couple of baby bell peppers just dried up. The plants have been full of blooms twice but still no fruit. I'm trying to find out what is wrong with them. How can I fix it?
Our tomatoes and peppers made it though the cool wet weather okay and are loving this hot sunny weather.
We put row covers on all our peppers during the cool period and they had no problems. The tomatoes were transplanted during the wet season and did not like it a bigt and mahny threatened to die on us but today I did the second tying of the 'maters and all are doing great, some even have largish fruits on them! They are growing like weeds
