We are not sure what happened this year - our veggies plants all grew so well but we just didn't seem to get any veggies. Mom says it is a dieter's veggies garden - the kind you can't over eat from. Here is our one and only cantaloupe - it grew to this size in just a couple of days and has now stopped growing. Now of coarse our apples and blueberries did okay and we did get some nice cabbages - but literally overnight the bugs ate right through them so we only got to try one.
Next we have MY strawberries - we have plants growing everywhere and this is our crop - 4 strawberries! That is not going to make the strawberry shortcake Dad loves so much! And our green beans - there is 2 of them - how darn sad is that!
Lastly - MY beefsteak tomato - we had one HUGE tomato on it back in May and then nothing until yesterday when picked all these little tiny tomatoes off the same plant - Mom is calling them lilliputian beefsteak tomatoes. Now before you asked, yes the plants got lots of organic fertilizer (which we must say stinks wonderfully), water, sunshine etc - we can only think it was the cooler than normal summer that worked against us. Slim pickins indeed in our garden this year!
