A year ago I found myself in the midst one of the busiest and more stressful seasons of my professional career, while also fighting a horrible virus that took its toll over eight months. Needless to say, my blog, and the garden to large extent, fell by the wayside. But what a difference a year makes. New job, clean bill of health… I’m back and ready to get my hands dirty!
Our 2015 season wasn’t a complete loss. Okra was a pleasant surprise!
as well as cucumbers and zucchini, including this beauty (even Roscoe was impressed!):
We struggled with tomatoes and peppers (in large part due to the aforementioned disappearing plants), and I didn’t realize our edamame seeds were past their life expectancy so we came up empty there. I also failed again with peas (what is the trick?!?!).
Now focus turns to 2016. This weekend I did a full assessment of our seeds, tossing the old and planning for the new.
I have high hopes.
