How Does Your Garden Grow?

End of summer garden report...our garden didn't do nearly as well as last summer due to heat and drought. Our herbs did fine. Our green beans were entirely eaten by rabbits. Our pepper never turned red. We do have some cute little mini pumpkins. Only a few fingerling carrots. The strawberry plants produced only the tiniest berries, but they are a perennial and aren't really supposed to produce fruit the first year. The rabbits almost killed our tomato plant, but we put wire around it in time. Still, only a few red tomatoes. Now there are dozens of tomatoes, but we have to rip out our garden next week because they are doing our backyard landscaping. So the boys had a blast picking a ton green tomatoes. Mr. Incredible's brilliant plan was to have our garden incorporated into the landscape. It will be about four times the size that it currently is. Can't wait to see it!
