The summer cultivation season has had its share of ups and downs this year. Early summer ushered in some good heat and sunlight followed by a prolonged cooling period, then recently back into some extreme heat and mostly dry weather. While some crops have done well especially cooler season crops, warm-season crops like tomatoes and other sun and heat-loving crops have been later and not spectacular so far this year. Summer squash came in with a bang as crickets and moths invaded the scene, although it hasn’t been a particularly bad year in terms of garden pests. The story of the year is peaches weighing down many a tree in Cornwall even breaking branches and limbs loaded with luscious fruit!
