Every gardener has successes and failures. Some are caused by unavoidable problems like the weather, and other are caused by the gardener. Here are a few I am having in my garden.
Other issues in my garden include: some broken tomato limbs because of wind that yours truly did not tie up, okra getting too hard because I am not harvesting it regularly enough, late cucumbers not germinating because the seeds were several years old, and several hydrangeas not blooming because of last year’s fall freeze and winter’s cold weather. There is no question that from the very early fall frost, through the hot humid and off and on summer showers, followed by a very dry period, we have had a very unusual few months of weather that is affecting many of our garden plants.
