Disappointing Season

This year was a total bust with our garden. It was definitely a disappointment. The green beans were bountiful as well as the cabbage. Unfortunately that was about it. We were able to can 5 quarts of salsa, however Todd forgot to add the vinegar so we were unable to store it. I froze 19 quarts of green beans and yellow beans, however one of the children left the deep freezer open, so we lost all of them.

Within the next week we MUST prepare the garden for next spring. We will definitely be searching on new methods. This is the second year in a row we have had problems with tomatoes. The end up with some sort of fungus and this year had black mold on top of it. It did not matter if the plants were in the ground, pots, or hanging, they all came down with this fungus problem. We did have a lot of rain at first. Research will be a must this winter.
