2009 in Review
Last year there were 11 items in the garden. The asparagus, strawberries, and rhubarb were pre-existing. The strawberries ran rampant and didn't produce much. The asparagus...well, we discovered that's not on a vegetable we want on our menu. Some of the rhubarb is still in freezer packs...d'you think that's okay to eat?
We planted iceberg lettuce, radishes, spinach, carrots, green beans, peppers, tomatoes and pumpkins. Everything lived and produced (except for the lettuce), though the pumpkin succumbed to a case of powdery mildew when it was only the size of small balloon and still dark green.
Oh, and weeds. Lots and lots of weeds. Hubby hated pulling them up, but he did a lot more of it than I did. I've got some plans on how to take care of that this year. And it all starts with getting my butt outside this afternoon to finish pre-weeding the garden.
