There’s always next year! (for those darned pumpkins to actually grow)
I only got 2 pumpkins from my garden this year. Well, I think they are pumpkins. They kind of look like pumpkins but they didn’t change colors like the pumpkins I’m used to. And also 2 very tiny squash. There were a few squash plants that didn’t produce at all, but to make up for it there were several rows of dried beans I don’t remember buying.
So, on to planning next year. Under consideration:
- Beets (never tried those before)
- Peppers (2 of my 3 plants this year did well; one did nothing)
- Carrots (these did well this year)
- Pumpkin (maybe if I just plant a couple of them, it will work)
- Green beans (always get a lot of beans)
- Horseradish (I’ll pull my current one up the spring for maror)
- Snow peas (maybe the birds will leave these alone – they always kill my snap peas)
- Spinach (I’ll plant a bit at a time instead of all at once like I did this year – a mistake)
- Eggplant (Rory liked these a lot)
- Raspberries (as long as I can keep the birds from them, too)
That should be enough for my small yard.
