How did your garden grow?

Asked by Cruiser (40401points) August 19th, 2011

How did your garden do this year? What were your successes and your busts?
This year was my first year in my new garden and my tomatoes, lettuce, peppers and beans were awesome, but I was perplexed by ZERO zucchinis, no melons either and one ear of corn per stalk.

I did find out half way through the season my sprinkler system was on. Unbeknownst to me it was watering all spring in the midnight hours and with all the rain we had this year I basically was drowning all the plants. I will make sure this doesn’t happen next year and plant less basil and lettuce, and give the zucchinis and melons another run and I did find out how to manually pollinate the plants and will do so next year. I loved growing chamomile this year too and will plant much more of them as well.

What did you learn and what will you do differently next season?
