If it's a good year, my neighbors will share their excess.
If it's a bad year, my plants will die first.
No garden for me.
Hopefully, unless we move out of this house.
I heard it might actually be hard to find seeds this year.
We'd love to, if we had space for one. Too shady in the backyard and not enough room anywhere else. Maybe we could plow up the driveway. :)
I have similar problems. Last year I tried planting tomatoes in three very large tree pots in a narrow spot along the driveway, fully expecting them to die before fruiting. Funny thing, watering them really seemed to help and we had HUGE plants with hundreds of tomatoes all season. Worth a shot. Beans and greens can also do well in containers. But you really have to water everyday.
I'm gonna plant a whole bunch of hot peppers as usual this year. I'll go ahead and plant some 'maters as well, but I seldom have real good luck with them. Summer is too hot or too cold. But the hot peppers seem always go do well. Last summer saw a bumper crop of habaneros, jumbo jalapenos, and those nasty little Thai peppers that burn just looking at them too long.
My only real frustration is with my zucchinis - about the time they get to size, those damn space bugs get on them and the plants wither and die. And I LOVE zucchinis.
This ought to be the year I can start harvesting some of my horse radishes as well. I planted them a couple of years ago and they ought to have nice fat roots now.
well i just took some money from the paycheck that i recieved and went to the walmart and the Checkers and bought up what other folks had planted and it worked out pretty good. i think i might try that again this year!!!
