I’m new to gardening, I’m trying to figure out what is going on with this pepper plant. It’s been raining a lot but it’s been losing some leaves but I think due to heavy rain fall.

Being I live in a semi-desert climate I had never heard of needing to plant veg gardens on ridges for drainage purposes until my late MIL mentioned this some 50 years ago. She adapted to the new gardening style very well where rainfall was in the 50-60 inch range rather than 15-20 inch annual amounts and as always had a beautiful garden.

Temperature - I've found peppers don't much care for cooler temps. If peppers plants were available to purchase in June that's when I'd buy mine because they don't usually do well early and don't produce fruit in hot weather but then come on strong in the fall.

We too have a lot of rain here in central Alabama and hill rows work well for us as our patch is located in a low part of the yard. The perculation of a soil is really the key, and our clay has a fiendish ability to resist draining.

With a tropical storm having just passed, I took some pictures of the water standing in the garden. We had a thunderstorm come through a couple of months prior that dumped as much or more

rain overnight which is hard to handle. Notice how it drowns weeds in the paths.
