Growing successful gardens in a season of rain and cold temperatures

August 7, 2013
By RICHARD GAST , Adirondack Daily Enterprise

This has not been a particularly good year for vegetable gardeners. The weather has been, at best, temperamental; hot and dry early on, with drought conditions throughout almost all of April and on into early May, then turning wet and cold in mid-May and remaining so through June and on into the first half of July. In fact, it rained, at least for a while, pretty much every single day for six weeks straight; pouring, driving rain. Every shower was a deluge. And to make things worse, nights were often quite cool, limiting evaporation. Gardens were unable to dry out.
