Garden Bounty

I'm joking because what you see is almost all there is so far. There will be tomatoes. I mean that as a fact not a positive confession. But, since I only planted a little of other stuff, I got even less.

At least these richly colored carrots are pretty because they taste gross. I imagine that this is what Breck hairspray tastes like, don't ask me why.

What is wrong with my soil that they are bitter again this year?
I could've sent a soil sample off to Texas A&M well before spring to prepare the soil. But I am the one who planned my garden plots and purchases on a wrinkled napkin at the last minute, so...



Ahh, and here is the result of my potato tire experiment. With 3lb of seed potatoes I was to grow 30 pounds.


Try 3 oz.

Oh well, we had like two weeks of Spring this year and this was an easy freebie project, so I'll try again next year.
The question is, what will I make with my haul? 3 fries?

Okay, this one worked. The grapes weren't quite ripe when I took this photo, but now they are purple and sweet.

We got so many on our tiny little vine that part of the vine broke under the weight while I was gone.

I have some reading up to do, I guess.
