Like you, my tomatoes did poorly. It was a particularly frustrating year for tomatoes - I would write a small novel about my tomato plants this year and the issues I had (I'll spare the details). The pepper plants didn't do super well either, but I'd never done those before so I didn't know what to expect.

I planted my beans and cucumbers too early - the seeds didn't even come up. Live and learn.

On a positive note - my beets, carrots, zucchini and herbs did really well!

I've planted a fall salad garden as well and I purchased a frost protector for it - I'm excited to see how well it will do. All the seeds came up, even with the lack of sun and all the rain, so I am staying positive!

I had a really good apple harvest this year. They are quite big compared to past years - this is going to be a weekend for pies, jellies, and sauces.

I should get together with Megan to figure out beets, they never grow for me!

Cool thing that I grew for the first time - celery! Yum.

Megan: peppers like heat too so they were doomed this year but your fall salad garden sounds like a great idea! 

Paula: normally Id never consider growing celery but now that you mention it, if youve ever had really good celery you discover it is quite yummy, isnt it?!  Maybe Ill make some space next year.  It requires tonnes of water, doesnt it?  Was it otherwise easy to grow?  I see some good caesars in my future...  ;-)

Lucky for my water hungry celery it rained a lot this summer! I only watered it a couple of times and did nothing else for it, so, I will give it a go again next year. Yummy, though.
