hat a long, strange trip this growing season has been! This season has brought an interesting mix of hot and cold temperatures (sometimes all in the same week), drought conditions in June followed by rain in July, winds, hail and an odd mixture of pests. Many bugs seem to be non-existent this year, while grasshoppers and some others seem to be more plentiful than usual.
