How long have you been veggie gardening?
This is my third year. For some reason, there wasn’t a lot of time when Jackjack was a newborn. Last year, I tried winter crops for the first time and they managed OK (as you can see, the leaves are a little bug-eaten, but everything tasted good). This year will be my first continuous gardening year.
What was your biggest gardening surprise?
Harvesting my first batch of garlic. That was my first attempt at growing garlic and we had enough to last for the whole year. There were *no* vampires at our house!
Is it too late to start a garden?
Absolutely not! Zucchini, cucumbers, thyme and basil will all do fine. These are spaghetti squash and basil seedlings. Since it’s a bit late in the season, getting plants from a nursery will be faster than starting from seed.
