There are so many factors involved in gardening, that it's hard to tell if my garden is on track with last year's epic performance (click here for a sample of that). I mean, my garden (photo at top of this post) looks fuller than late June, 2010........
But I am definitely nowhere near July 25, 2010's impressive stature:
I'm not sure whether the 2011 garden is experiencing some under-performance due to lack of fertilization this spring, different weather conditions, or even whether this is a year-long damper on production or just a delay in production. Time will tell!
