Our experiential garden
One good thing about waiting until July to plant a vegetable garden is that the veggies are dirt cheap. (Less than dirt, if you are actually buying dirt.) If we get one vegetable out of it, it will have paid for itself. And that may be all we get. While the pepper plants came with bitty peppers on them, they haven't grown much. The sun has already shifted so that shade falls on our garden plot in early morning and late afternoon. Now the asparagus, lettuce and cucumber plants, they are doing just fine -- so fine that something has been dining on them. But it's all good because this garden gives us something to new to see every day. We'll learn for future efforts.
