The hottest summer and spring on record for New Jersey.
Though summer doesn't end officially until the 21st, for weather record keepers, June-August is the summer.
And usually we get 12.84 inches of rain - but this summer only recorded 8.34 - 65% below normal. My tomatoes were never really happy, even with my mulching and watering. When zucchini doesn't want to grow, there's something wrong.
