breaking news (a little late)

"Michigan Tomatoes suffer with Wacky Weathy" - No kidding!  Gardening was so bad here this year it got an article in the newspaper.

Glad to know I am not alone.  

I harvested so far, about a bushel of potatoes.  3 tomatoes (from 72 plants started!) 1 small zuchini, 1 yellow squash, 2 jalapeno peppers.  Lots of sunflowers and zinnias. 

We plowed under the green beans at the farm.  Concerning the sweet corn, we got about 3 dozen ears, and the deer got the rest. 

You know it's really bad when you can't get zucchini to grow.  On the other hand, the self-seeding seven-top turnips planted by Ed's uncle 20 years ago came up after we plowed under the beans.  Too bad we aren't that fond of turnip greens! 

There is always next year.
