"i thought i was going to put mulch down but it's too wet" she told me this has been one interesting season. campbell says weather hasn't been good to gardeners this summer. too much rain in the beginning plus a drought towards the later months stunted the growth of many plants... campbell says she just has to roll with the punches. "you can't control it so you just, it is what it is you learn to just accept things as they come " "this is part of the problem with a very hot dry summer" patti weaver says this is the second worst year the garden''s had in it's 12 years. she took me through the garden to see some of the bad areas. weaver manages the garden. some of the plants didn't make it through the season..
