The Green Side of Life: Garden update September 2021

Our gardening season was cut short this year by some pretty intense heat. Everything was growing and flowering, but the heat just overwhelmed my veggies and that was the end. My Roma tomatoes grew in such a weird fashion that i seriously wondered if the heat hadn’t mutated them into a new strain.

I don’t think I’ll do container gardening for tomatoes again. When they’re at their peak, they need so much water that the soil in the pots just doesn’t retain enough to keep them steady. Half the tomatoes I had, had to be thrown away because of bottom rot.

I got one cucumber from the vine, the other two were short, fat and round. No squash as all the flowers were male and no sweet potatoes. Hubby got a pile of squash from his, so I must be doing something wrong.

Check out the sad pictures of my garden. The first two are from mine, the rest are from Hubby’s.

Ah well, there’s always next year, right?
