As you can see...my peas are up!
I am trying not to be too disappointed about how my garden turned out this year. I did get some tomatoes, but not the glut that I was hoping for. The same goes for the cucumbers. I was hoping to have lots of them for canning, but I can't seem to keep those pesky rabbits from eating them. Then there are the black beans and the red beans. It seems the ants have destroyed most of them.
I am consoling myself with the thought that I am 'learning' how to rotate crops and build beds. In a few years, my dirt will have better soil from all the added compost. I will also have enough beds to accomplish the vision in my head. Not that I will ever have enough beds...I will just have a good start at the beginning of planting season.
I am worried that I won't get the harvest out of this new crop that I am planting now. Maybe it will get real cold at night and freeze my stuff. I have never planted much of a winter crop before. I might be pleasantly surprised. I might have better luck getting things to grow in the cooler times. So...I keep planting. What can I say...I can't stop myself, anyway. It is as much of an experiment, as a hope for the future.
