A midst all the tragedy, there have been a few bright spots. My carrots are coming along nicely, the basil and other herbs are gigantic, and the tomatoes are finally getting big and ripe. I wouldn't call the garden a failure but I wouldn't say I'm ready to support myself after the Apocalypse, either. I was hoping to be canning my bountiful harvest all fall but looks like I'll be taking notes on what to do next year instead! In a few weeks, I'm going to turn everything over and try out the cardboard composting that I've seen online. That will hopefully help with the soil for next year. I'm also going to get a much earlier start next spring.
It may not have been a stunning success but hey, that's what this blog and LIFE is all about, taking on new challenges and learning from mistakes :)
