August is speeding by

Amazing how fast the summer speeds by when you are wallowing in a great big mess.  Here we are, knocking on the end of August, and we only "got heat" about one week ago.  We had 2.41 inches of rain yesterday and lastnight, and woke up to zero humidity, which is a huge blessing.  My garden is happy, but always on the verge of a fungus with the wet, cool summer we've had.  I have tons of tiny green tomatoes, but they are slow to ripen.  We'll see how the salsa season pans out.  My front flowers are dabbling in fungus; I have tried treating them, but to no avail.  We'll see how much longer they pan out.  I'm guessing not too much longer.  Such a weird season; the strangest summer I can remember in a long, long time.  And I'm not just talking about the weather!
