Rain, rain, go away

The garden's not looking so hot. I attribute it to a combination of pests and excessive rainfall. Our bell pepper plants look terrible. The leaves are unhealthy and there's no fruit.

The tomatoes, while similarly gaaahhhhhh looking, at least have some berries on them, although they may rot on the vine before they ripen thanks to slugs and water-loggedness.

At least the cherry tomato plant looks fairly healthy.

And we've got 10 watermelons, 2 of which are bigger than softballs now. Maybe we'll be able to eat them in August.

Look closely!

The kids have to wear raincoats all the time these days. But they still won't stay outta their wading pool!
