My first heirloom garden has been a learning experience. And while I do think I’m learning, some days, I feel like no matter what I learn, it won’t matter. I can’t help but think that if the weather next year isn’t identical to the weather this year, I’m hosed.
Still, I’m moving forward with this in mind. Everything I planted this year is right on top of each other. So nothing has room to spread out, thrive, and get proper sun. I think that is hurting all my veggies a bit.
Next year, I’ll plant less. If every seed I plant sprouts, I will pull out the weaker links to give more room to the healthy plants. I’ll consider using slightly different types of soil for different plants.I Can’t Control the Weather: An Over Grown GardenMaggie Downie2017-09-12T19:31:28-04:00
