It's a bit skimpy this year.
We planted our garden in early May, nearly a month earlier than usual. We thought ~ "Oh, the harvest we'll have!" Yet, it's been disappointing. It's been a bit wetter than normal, but not like a few years ago when we got NO sun until August. We've had plenty of sunshine and still - the tomatoes are puny and few.
Next year I think I'm going to finally do what I always SAY I'm going to do - buy a share at a local organic farm. Our yard/soil has always been the black hole of death, so why do we keep pouring money, time, and water into something that yields so little?
"Because it's fun," says my husband.
Yeah. Woo hoo.
