But the good news is that this was an experimental garden and, in that respect, it was a success. I've learned what things I can grow easily from seed in my area (corn, basil, borage, peas, lettuces, carrots, spinach, cucumber, thyme,rosemary) and what doesn't (tomatoes, eggplant, lavender, peppers, chamomile, to name a few.) Plus it's fun to watch corn grow, even if its, like, two ears per stalk. I can make several salads off of what I have in my garden at this moment- that's cool.
So, you see, I have traded in phrases like: expect, disappointed, and getting for the zen-like expressions: experimental, learned, fun to watch.
But really I just VANT tomatoes! Next year I'm planting a big, honkin garden in the side yard.
