We planted quite a garden this year. Certainly bigger than last year. Our crop has really been hit or miss. The radishes really behaved more like a weed. We had gobs of radishes. Then we entered a phase of having a lot of growth and green but little product. Well, heat and day after day of sun seems to be the ticket. The picture above if 2 of our probably 30+ Roma tomatoes. A little bitty corn, I don't think there is enough there to munch. I am giving our other 6 or so ears of corn a little more time. Also above there are 2 ball zucchinis. I had little luck with the regular zucchinis last year with the squirrels. Carrots seem to be holding there own. I am really anxious to get them out. Fresh picked carrots are SO, so good! In a week or so I will have a bucket of Romas. My larger tomatoes are also doing great but are all still green. There have been some learning moments in this whole process.
- plant more peppers
- plant beets
- maybe a few less radishes
- go back to normal zucchinis
- add another box so there is more room
- pay better attention to the space allotted for each plant
I will definitely plant again next year. A little earlier perhaps, but certainly more. I has been a very good exercise in patience. Something I need.
