Well, that’s that. Yet, again, I have another failed garden. Every year it’s something different, and while I hoped that nothing would happen this year, it seems that once again, I won’t have much of a harvest.
After record flooding in Oklahoma and the fact that I was gone for a month visiting family, the grass took over my garden boxes—even through the mesh bottoms.
Unfortunately, the Hubs isn’t much of a gardener, so by the time I got back from my trip, nearly all of the plants had been starved for too long. Not to mention, the all the rain was just too much. The casualties included my green beans, corn, strawberries, and bell peppers. The flooding rain took the potatoes, onions, tomatoes, and garlic, leaving only the cabbage, broccoli, watermelon, cantaloupe, and cucumbers as the only survivors.
Well, I guess, there is nothing to do, but harvest what I can and try again next year.
