The drought has not been terribly kind to our garden. The corn got corn smut which is apparently a delicacy in Mexico, but I passed on putting it in my quesadillas. The peas and beans and peppers produced hardly anything, and the broccoli was so bitter as to be inedible. The potatoes didn’t seem to produce much, either.
The tomatoes have done well, as have the cucumbers, Swiss chard, beets, turnips, collard greens, squash and onions. In fact, we had so many cucumbers that I made pickles for the first time ever. And that was interesting, because I don’t like pickles, but something had to be done with the cucumbers and Stephan does like pickles so I’m hoping he’ll eat them up. Eight of my nine jars sealed, so that’s good.
We have some corn planted at home that we hope will be better than that at the garden, and there are still lots of tomatoes and a nice big pumpkin on the vine.
How about your garden?
