So how did your garden do this year? We had a good year for the garden, the spring was early, and mild, but wet, the staggered plants happen lots and well, the hugelbeets did well, the garden got overrun and outgrew most of their planting area’s despite giving them extra spacing and straw ground cover, some fruits had bumper year crops, others were ok, and some where not good at all. The fall crops appear to be coming in well, last year I lots almost all my tomato’s to blight, this year the crop is amazing and still coming on strong. The Potato’s and root crops along with the winter sqaush are looking very good at this time so far.
What was your bumper crop this year? what was your crop that just would not grow? Did you get enough rain this year? To much heat? to much rain? Not enough heat?
