Summer Garden Fail

Pin It

The fact that I barely got around to even posting about the start of my garden this year should have told me that I should just quit while I was ahead.

I did plant a container garden this year: Tomatoes, peppers, lettuce, spinach, strawberries, cucumbers, carrots,  zucchini, sugar peas, and even some dill.

I've been really bad about watering them, but in the first half of the year, God did that part for me. Things went pretty well, plants grew, I got some lettuce, spinach, peas, a few strawberries, and several cucumbers. Then it got hot, with no rain. Even with regular watering, I just couldn't quite keep up with the heat. Pretty much everything has wilted and died.  Well, not everything.  The two surviving tomato plants are doing well, as are the strawberries. 

Everything else is a bust.

Unfortunate, since Elizabeth was really looking forward to the carrots.

Another year, I suppose.
