I fear our is little garden isn't going to do much in terms of feeding our family this year. We planted late and the slugs and snails made quick work of our young squashes. The one zucchini plant that survived probably won't have time to produce. Luckily it's never too difficult to find someone trying to get rid of zucchini.
I've also been thinking that our many maples blocking the sun for a good part of the day probably has something to do with our stunted vegetable growth. I talked to my sister while she was here about maybe taking a tree out to let more sun in. She commented that trees are also nice and that we'll never grow enough food in this garden to feed our family anyway. She labeled our garden as a yearly experiment. And I'd add experience to that. When I look at it that way, our garden is just perfect for us.
So far from this experiment we've harvested peas, beans, beets raspberries and herbs.
