for vegetable gardening and then I come here. And you all make me change my mind. I love all your posts and when you post about some of the problems you have in your garden I think I am not alone. So guess I am still going to be a vegie gardener again next year.lol
Great! Keep feeding your family healthy, FRESH food!
You should see my maters now...the 3 grape tomato plants I didn't pull. They look horrible, pathetic...only a few leaves the horn worms didn't eat! But I see some tiny new growth coming...so more maters later in the fall!
And I've got half of my little patch ready for my fall crops...cabbage, broccoli, snap peas & english peas. My celery hasn't come up yet, they are slow. And I'll be sticking a bunch of fast grows inbetween like radishes & lettuce.

Owie- funny you should say that. Every year about this time I say, Next Year not going to plant so much......come spring when the itch hits, guess what! All those resolutions go right out the window...and we end up with a garden chocked full again.
Plus, with grocery prices now.......it ends up being much cheaper to provide a healthy meal that you know is free from all that scary stuff they show on tv.
yes owie.. do plant something.. even if it is one tomato bush. can't have this mb next year without you!
I got some inspiration from an 82 year old patient today. He grows 3 dozen tomato and pepper plants and gives his leftovers away. I'm thinking if he can still do that I can too. Maybe it will be different next year because I will be retired.
What an inspiring story!!! Glad you will continue to plant things! You can plant less, so it's not a big, demanding project! I got some nice tomatoes earlier in the season and then some fungi seemed to have taken over. I felt bad, but was surprised and a little relieved when I noticed my 'green thumb' neighbor's veggies weren't that good-looking and her squash had the same powdery mildew mine has. I felt bad but I figured if she's been gardening for many, many years, then I should continue too. That guy was an absolute total inspiration, how cute! Wish he was MY neighbor!!
SPRING HAS F I N A L L Y SPRUNG!!!!!
