Veggie Blues

A week ago William wrote a blog (you can read it on the Gardentime.tv blog) about his ‘veggie-blues’. Being an experienced gardener he was disappointed by the performance of his vegetable garden this year. Certain things grew well and other ‘proven’ vegetables didn’t do well at all. We decided to cover a few of his points in this story for all to see.

A week ago William wrote a blog about his ‘veggie-blues’.  Being an experienced gardener he was disappointed by the performance of his vegetable garden this year. Certain things grew well and other ‘proven’ vegetables didn’t do well at all.  We decided to cover a few of his points in this story for all to see.

First of all the successes; William had good luck with eggplants, herbs, onions, cherry tomatoes, pumpkins and squash. Failures include cabbage, large tomatoes, and carrots.

Some interesting things happened too. The broccoli bolted into flower during the hot summer days, but after being cut back it is now showing some florettes and the peppers are now starting to recover from a slow start. The point we are trying to make?

If you were just trying vegetable gardening for the first time and you had problems in the garden, don’t worry! Everyone has trials and successes every year. The one thing you can’t control is nature. The lesson learned is to be persistent. Take some notes and try some different vegetables next year. If you ever have any questions, your best source for information is your local garden center.
