As a result, the vegetable garden is pretty much done for the season. Yep, that's right. And i am as miserable about it as you are. the lack of time to properly weed and maintain, along with poor showing of just about everything this year has put the garden to bed early for the fall. I managed to get two decorative gourds out of 8 hills of various pumpkins, gourds and melons this season.
A couple zucchini, a couple cucumbers, a few peppers, some carrots, some lettuce, some peas, no beans, no corn, no pumpkins.
The only things that did well were potatoes, onions and tomatoes.
But overall, I was generally feeding the local woodchuck and bunny population.
Next year will be better.
