Last summer (my first year gardening) was awesome. We practically lived off of our backyard. Fresh eggs for breakfast and delicious salads for dinner!
Because everything grew so out of control in the two beds that I had, I ended up building 2 more in the side yard this year. It was a lot of work but I figured that I could definitely use the extra space for some new and exciting plants.
I started early and felt prepared for the summer ahead. I planted seeds when the weather got warm I and spent a lot of time back there treating my garden with as much care and attention as I did last year.
But something must have been different.
I feel like such a failure. everything that could have gone wrong seemed to happen this year. Not to mention, we had A LOT of sunshine which should have made for a great harvest. But we were left with practically nothing and no explanation as to way :(
My mint, which despite all the issues in the garden, grew well and looks as though it will make it through the winter.
They are a lot like Velociraptors, they check for weaknesses in the fencing...and they find it. It only took 1 hour before they were able to destroy all my strawberries, peppers, kale and green been plants. And I mean DESTROYED.
Did anyone else have a hard time in the garden this year?
