Garden Lessons for 2015

What have I learned from gardening this year?

  1. Too much rain in the spring and early summer don’t equal a great crop of tomatoes in the summer.
  2. Having a toddler who doesn’t find playing the garden fun, makes gardening almost impossible.
  3. Too much rain + toddler = Weed Fest 2015
  4. Heirloom tomatillos planted in 2014 will produce new plants and fruit in 2015.
  5. Adding two younger children to the household just means less time for the garden.

Honestly, I’m not even sure I could call my garden a garden this year.  This would have been a more appropriate description.

I went into it with great plans and good intentions, but life and the weather just seemed to have a different plan.

Now we’re preparing to pull everything up (except for the blueberries and raspberries I planted this spring), work out a different plan for next year and hope we’re more successful in our gardening attempts.

The nice thing about gardening is that you get a do-over every spring.

Here’s to a better 2016 garden season!!!
