Near-record rainfall leading to record harvests in my garden

This summer so far has been the wettest I’ve ever seen since I moved here to Virginia in 1995. In June, we saw 6.5 inches of rain, almost 3 inches above normal, with easily several more inches tacked onto that so far this month. Judging by how loaded my tomato plants are, I’m in for a record harvest! Of course, also playing a part is the Neptune’s Harvest™ fish/seaweed emulsion fertilizer I use every two weeks. The difference in how my plants look compared to using Miracle Grow™ is like night and day. I’m having to use extra steaks to keep my tomato plants standing up, from the weight of the bumper crop of tomatoes. But hey, I’m not complaining!\
