This year I am trying to keep things simple and enjoyable in the garden.
I ended up planting peas four times. And I still might only get two or three pea plants. Every year there is something that hasn’t done well – peas have been really solid for me the last few years, I guess this is their year. (Or not, rather.)
So, we’ll see what we get.
Positive side to an empty trellis: I’m going to try pole beans!
There are little solutions everywhere!
- I killed my little tomato starts. Solution: buy them from a friend!
- My eggplants didn’t sprout. Solution: buy them from Welcome Table Farm.
Some days, Sunset Magazine et. al. can make you feel like everything needs to be perfect, and you can drive yourself crazy thinking that way. If I remind myself I just want to grow some beautiful food to eat, then it stops mattering.
