My garden last year was small and simple. It grew really well though! It was just little.
My garden this year (different yard!) was an utter and complete fiasco. I mean like 3 tiny tomatoes. Everything else, EVERYTHING ELSE died.
Well, it is a very shady yard. I planted our garden in the brightest spot I could find this spring. Then all the trees grew leaves, and all the shrubs grew back and nothing survived.
Oh, wait, I forgot. In addition to the three tiny tomatoes (that Oliver ate) we got two small strawberries.
SO SO tragic.
But, word has gotten out that 1. My garden was a failure and 2. My children love produce.
And kindly neighbors have brought us tomatoes, squashes, zukes, cukes, peaches (oh sweet peaches!), lettuce, and on and on. Yum.
So, yes, garden=dead, but neighbors=kind. We're still enjoying garden produce, I just had nothing to do with it.
