How does your garden grow?

Good thing I’m not trying to make a living as a farmer.  So far the cauliflower is bitter, the broccoli is tough, the apples are  tasty but a bit mushy, the 6 berries died on the vine and word is still out on the 4 tomatoes which are green.  Stay posted for my next CROP.

  1. Sounds like my garden last year. The only veggies that really grew were the ones underground…potatoes, shallots….ect.
    Hubby did the tomatoes, we did get some lovely tomatoes…enough for at least one nice pot of homemade spaghetti sauce.

    But the beans died on the vine, the lettuces all just stayed the same size they were when planted, the squash got squash bugs (ewwww)….it was a sad first try at a garden. It’s really hard to grow organic!!! This year I wasn’t up to taking care of a garden, so we’ve grown a lot of weeds!

    I do have a hearty herb garden! I love my herb garden and really miss it in the winter. I dry them at the end of the season, but it’s not the same. : )

    I hope your tomatoes come out well.

    I look at it this way, we learned a lot about what not to do! haha


  2. I meant to say your drawings are magnificent. You could retire and just sell your art. There’s a website…etsy. I know someone who pays her rent selling not so great ear rings.


  3. The garden and vegetables are beautiful. I do think both broccoli and cauliflower are winter crops. To get rid of snails, slugs, roaches or any indoor insects, use food grade Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth. It’s good through watering and rain. You do have to sprinkle now and then. Here’s a chart on when to plant in socal:) Same with apple’s. they are a cold weather tree, but there may be some to plant in socal, also ask for a firm apple, so are mushy, like macintosh:( Fuji’s are my fav to cook and eat. Rogers gardens would know. they would have the Diatomaceous Earth as well.


    • Ida,
      I’ll check out the diatomaceous earth. Our apple tree is suppose to be ok for Southern California – that’s what the nursery man said! Broccoli and cauliflower are winter crops – I got them in the ground late – I hate pulling out anything that is green and growing but looks like I need to pull and replant.


  4. I’ve just about given up on my gardening of veggies and fruits … I haven’t attempted anything but tomatoes … first year we had a bumper crop … then we realized we did it all wrong and corrected in the next year and it was a bust for that year and the 2 years following … LOL Now if we are talking about raising snails — I have a bumper crop of those!! Love your drawings!! Glad to see postings — hope each day you are feeling better and better! 😀
