Though we are far from enthusiastic with such an extreme plummet in harvest totals and disappointing yields.
It was very weird, it seemed like the garden just went into suspension mode. Very, very odd. Some crops didn’t seem to be effected while other just puttered out.
After 20 years, we have better soil, better watering applications (thanks to the clay pots) and just more experience under our dirty nails; no matter, the weather always has the last say.
How’s everyone’s garden growing, any progress reports, weigh ins? Care to share or sum up how this year fared with previous growing seasons?
We are hearing from other across the country that they too experienced a lack luster growing season. So this is not just an isolated incident.
