We tried to be very stalwart this year and plant our garden–as usual…but something strange is going on here. I mean, really–it’s mid August and we’ve gotten exactly 4 cherry tomatoes so far. Four–and you’re looking at two of them.
I planted the ever-bearing type of strawberries…but I think the robins frightened the plants enough that they stopped producing. Oh, wait–that only happens with cows and chickens. Sorry.
Or I suppose it could be all those weeds causing the problem…but I doubt it. :}
The parsley came up nicely–along with the orchard grass…in the weed free grow box. Ha ha.
And what–may I ask–is this lettuce-y thing growing in the onions? We didn’t even plant lettuce!
The peas are nice, but they’ve been in the ground for a month now and the pea pods are still scrawny. Is it the dirt? Is it the heat? Is it the moon?
Or is it…just…
I’m hoping it will all perk up soon–but I’ll take any advice I can get. In the meantime, I guess I’ll try more water…and keeping my fingers crossed.
Perhaps some chanting too. “Growww-growww-growww.”
That should do it.
