A little more hope

Monday, 12 Sep 11 Cloudy 26°C / 79°F

I had pretty much given up on growing carrots. I’ve been good at growing the “greens” but the roots have never been much, if they have not just outright died. So, last night I decided to go pull up the last plantings of carrots in my Shed Bed garden, and see if we could get a little bit to add to dinner. I may end up planting carrots again after all :)

Also, some other harvesting. Definately not questioning my ability to grow squash, powdery mildew and all!

    nice! I think the slugs and pillbugs keep getting mine, or maybe they dont like my clay soil.

    I’m blaming soil in my case. This crop was in a brand new bed with much better soil.
