Another Failed Garden #gardening #gardens #homestead #homesteading

11203064_10205207929431128_8648942769381157365_nWell, 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.

Super.

Well, I guess, there is nothing to do, but harvest what I can and try again next year.

  1. With all your writing, rearing and schooling youngsters, I’m surprised you got anything. I’ve barely kept a few house plants alive in my lifetime. My dad grows tomatoes on his land in Wisconsin, and this year I’m looking forward to getting some (now that I’m closer to him). Home grown tomatoes have so much more flavor. Can’t wait. Sorry about your garden, but glad you got at least some salvaged.
