Slacker Vegetable Garden
What an oddity while the rest of the US bakes, the Pacific NW is rain logged. My vegetable garden is not what I had hoped it would be :(
We had a good crop of sugar snap snow peas and the lettuce has been successful this year. However the summer veggies are suffering from a lack of warmth and squishy, soggy weather conditions.
I see green tomatoes growing but man is it slow growing!
Butternut Squash and Zucchini are sad this year. Who would have thought there could ever be a summer where zucchini would not grow?
I see a small crop of bush beans coming along. Granted..small crop. Going to try runners next year.
I am keeping my fingers crossed I will have a bumper crop of potatoes though!
And lastly I hope to harvest a few carrots. Again, not many yet, it's been a sad growing season.
So, that's my report. There is not much good news to report although we have very much enjoyed our great season of strawberries! Someday, I hope to have a little more success in my vegetable garden..ya know..just a little boost to my gardening self esteem would be nice :) Cheers, Jenni
