This is the first time in my gardening life I can say I have had more failed crops than successful ones. I usually am good at this... but this year just threw me for a loop. I have lots of reasons... started later due to the season, ending early due to the weather, pregnancy, shootings, homeschooling, new house, dead animals, etc... but it still feels like a blow to me. I keep wondering what I could have done differently.... but I doubt it is helping much. Cherry tomatoes are in full swing and I keep picking them. But they are split because of the rain. All of them. So they go bad nearly instantly. Beets were the only things I didn't seed tape this year, but then I couldn't eat the greens so the natural thinning I usually do didn't happen and now there is no beet out there over an inch wide. Ugh! I could go on and on... Next year will be better.
