Denise stopped by the farmers market this week lamenting the miserable conditions...hot,humid and lots of weeds, and in the general frame of mind that this gardening thing is just not worth all the effort. I surely relate but anything worth doing is worth doing even when the going is tough. In a few weeks we'll start planting for the fall harvest and before we know it these dog days will be behind us and we'll be enjoying the best gardening season of the year.
So hang with me folks, we'll all get through this together.
Today I finished digging my potato crop. Potatoes did so-so for me this year, the rain made the crop scabby and in some cases the rain was too much and the plants couldn't handle all that water. Tomato crop is the best I've had in several years, we've had extra to take to the food bank so we have been blessed indeed. Tomatoes are the highlight of the season but the crop quickly fades and that 4 week window of production will be over soon. Gather your tomatoes often, enjoy your harvest, and share your bounty.
