Hopefully TEOTWAWKI won't happen anytime soon or my family will starve!
Strawberries - all eaten by the birds before they got ripe, plants are now totally overtaken with grass. I can't even find the plants anymore. I'm not sure what I'm going to do, either til them all under or take the time to separate each plant from the grass.
Peas - got a handful before the plants died due to heat
Tomatoes - had a ton of green tomatoes, the chickens ate them all before they could ripen
Green beans - harvested enough for 3 dinners, the grasshoppers have now eaten all the leaves, planted more seeds about a month ago, none germinated or were eaten as soon as they did
Brocolli - never got any heads
Potatoes - never grew
Corn - improvement from last year. Last year the plants only got waist high and I never got any ears. This year the plants got head high and I got ears! However, this is how they all look:
I guess I didn't get good fertilization.
Sweet potatoes - hanging in there, I'm hopeful for a good harvest
Okra - still hasn't germinated, but it's only been a week since I planted them
Asparagus - the one thing that is doing really good, won't be ready to harvest for at least another year
Weeds - doing great! Although even they are starting to die from lack of rain
I spent a couple of weeks wallowing in self pity (it's how I work). Now I'm ready to cowgirl up and make it work. I think I'm going to build 4 or 5 more raised beds, they seem to do the best here. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
