Growing on the High Plains: Summer Failures & a Fall Garden
You can't win them all, and I certainly didn't claim any victories this year when it comes to my summer garden. Oh well, I'll try, try again for a Fall crop!
This summer...was a bummer! Perhaps all the difficulties we've been processing in this world have somehow crept into the confines of my garden--because these vegetable plants have a serious case of the blues. But despite the early fizzle of my summertime production, which I blame on unencumbered pests and this year's scorching heat, I'm not giving up just yet. As we move into autumn, I think I'll attempt to salvage the season by getting a Fall garden in the ground. After all, a great batch of homegrown goods on one's dining table is worth the extra effort. Who knows! Maybe I'll even get a nice salad (or ten).
