The first part of my address will cover what is and the second part will cover what's to come. But unlike most politicians, my address will be all about the facts.
Like the state of our union, my garden has its bright spots and its challenges.
First the bright spots.
|My sole broccoli plant is still producing side shoots!|
The garlic looks wonderful
|Another broccoli plant is producing a head|
|The Lettuce looks great|
|Some of the Onion is doing beautifully|
|The collards and spinach are still producing after many harvests and the garlic is doing very good as well.|
For the challenges;
Well I don't have pictures of the challenges, but they are:
- All of the grocery store garlic in Bed 3 has died.
- My carrots didn't germinate as well as I had hoped and they don't appear very big given the size of their tops
- The following also did not germinate at all (all direct sown): turnips, onion, leeks, and most of the broccoli. I know some of this was due to bad timing, some due to watering issues, and some due to weeds....live and learn right.
Now, I know that most State of the Unions do not have commercial breaks. But I've gotta do this in two parts, so stay tuned for Part II --- What's to Come?
