Been tilling regularly to try to aerate the soil, but my peppers are wilting and starting to drop leaves.    This week will be the nail in the coffin I suppose.    This has been a regular thing the last few years with peppers and tomatoes between the various blights and excessive rains.   At least another sign of fall today - average temps have begun their decline in PHL.

Gives me more incentive to do my garden from pots vs. ground (since it's small anyway). My 2 pepper pots have been huge producers and look good as I hid them from last week's deluge. Meanwhile, tomato, cucs, zuccs all show signs of yellowing and/or powdery mildew. This week will not help.

Hopefully things dry out by the weekend.

I am in Pittsburgh about to board a flight back to PHL, hope all that rain in between doesn’t affect anything. Doesn’t look like much lightning on RadarScope so hopefully it’s not convective in nature? Earlier flight was delayed an hour or two but so far my 3pm flight is on time.

Raised beds, plenty of peat moss and easy drainage. The pepper/tomato garden is going strong
