Our garden struggles and so do we. The sweet potatoes planted in the near right bed -- you can't really see them in this photo -- suffer from flooding. All that runs down hill ends up in this patch. I guess next year we will build it up and allow for drainage underneath. Five tomato plants planted very late, hold their own in the near left bed while a squash plant looks like it is doomed. Corn in the far right bed is doing OK. In what appear to be bare spots, new shoots are coming up. The far left with beans, squash, melons, pumpkins, and carrots is the healthiest bed, although the carrot seeds nearly washed out and are clumped at the near right hand corner of that bed awaiting thinning. Looks like I won't be giving up my twice-weekly trips to the Farmer's Market anytime soon. Today I bought cabbage, corn and worms, dill, peaches, onions and garlic. And I ordered a free-range heritage turkey for Thanksgiving.
I think I'm a better quilter than gardener.
