Two years ago we had so much food it was simply insane. Cukes everywhere. Lots of squash, beans, carrots, even some red and proper sized tomatoes. I honestly can't figure out what the difference is. Same plant food, same watering schedule, same dirt. The weather was cooler in June followed by sweltering heat for 3 weeks. But COME ON GARDEN, give me a break, I just am not feeling the love with the lettuce trees that you have produced.

i give you my love and you hand me a pathetic cucumber
Where do I begin with the garden? I felt so smug this spring. Planting everything in neat little rows. Discussing gardening with my friends (like I was some sort of gardener who knew what she was doing). But alas, I have produced one damn cucumber. It is small too and curved. Granted there are some phallic looking green parts on the plant but they have been there for weeks now. Doing nothing. I almost forgot the three garlic bulbs. They turned out ok. The squash plant is taking over and has yet to produce anything that looks like a squash. It has a month and a half before prime squash eating time begins and so far it is just a large leafy plant. I have 3 small orange tomatoes. I don't remember buying a cherry tomato plant, but that is what they look like. Granted I have never had luck with tomatoes. I even sacrificed the chard and gave it to the bugs to keep the rest of the garden happy.
