Today was somewhat productive, even though we received a lot of rain. I tried working in the garden this morning, but was only able to mulch six tomato plants before having to quit. It rained much of the morning, but then cleared up nicely.

After work Andrea and I went back to the garden and finished up the mulching. We mulched and weeded the rest of the tomatoes and peppers. We also weeded the onions, and was able to harvest one of them. It was a good sized, nicely developed onion, which we were pleased with considering this is our first attempt at growing them. We decided to go ahead and dig a few potatoes as well, since some of the Yukon Gold plants have died back completely. Unfortunately the yields of the five plants that we dug were not good. We only found eleven small potatoes, averaging just under one ounce each. These were all from the last row I planted, which had no compost applied, so I'm hoping that maybe the other rows will perform much better. We'll just have to wait and see. It started raining just as we were finishing up, but luckily we made it back to the house before the storms and hard rains came.
