I have finally finished the tomato reorganizing in the barn garden. I have people ask me what they have done wrong this season to get so few to no as tomatoes. The answer is nothing, it's just part of gardening.
As I was going through my garden I found several beautiful tomato vines with nothing on them. Out of sixteen plants I have six that produced this season in that garden. Poor showing even for heirlooms which can be poor producers to begin with.
But, for a season limited for tomatoes it has been great for eggplant and pepper with the rain and super heat we have gotten in PA this season. And my second round of beans, corn and squash have been awesome.
Isn't that what growing your own food is all about, going with the flow? Especially in these times of economic issues, we have to be prepared for things to change in an instant. Doesn't the season help to teach us how to deal with changes in our lives?
