We have four raised beds on our property in which we’ve planted vegetables in the past. However, this year I had other plans, and the neighbors asked if they could plant a vegetable garden in our raised beds and then share the produce with us. A great idea, and they worked hard on their garden, but it produced a grand total of nothing. They had a little more success, but not much, with what they planted on their own property.
I planted onions, peas, tomatoes and cucumbers in grow bags on our back deck and harvested a grand total of two cucumbers.
Gardens this year just didn’t produce. Nothing grew, and if the plants did grow, they produced no vegetables. The same was true for flowers. I started several varieties of flowers from seed, and they either didn’t come up or failed to bloom. We had enough rain and plenty of sunshine. Who knows?
My two cucumbers tasted wonderful even if they were as round as little melons and yellow instead of green…
