My neighbor across the street has fabulous vegetable yield. Gave me
several huge beets (I have NEVER had luck w/beets), yellow tomatoes,
red onions. All I could give him was a few cucumbers from the back
veg area, w/ promise of Blue Lake beans when they get ready, and lots
of lemons from the tree.
I have bupkis in my central lawn veg garden this year -- several
pickings of Yellow Wax Beans. Green onions doing OK, but don't they
always. Corn looking miserable . Had to pull up the Home Despot
tomato plants; salvaged a few tomatoes. But last year was a good
year! Cantaloupes, corn, beans, all kinds goodies. I think something
nasty is at work this year .
But the back veg. area is doing fairly well, though watermelon &
cantaloupe are taking forever to flower, much less fruit. [may be due
to strange Spring/Summer overcast not enough sunshine?]
Did harvest several pickings of lovely, slim French green beans, and
cucumbers bearing reasonably OK. Just planted seeds for more Yellow
Wax Beans. Blue Lake beans heading for the stratosphere.
SHE giveth and SHE taketh away.
(That phony second-person Shakespeare/King James "...eth" is not
proper translation of Hebrew., which has no "thou"; just an
egalitarian "you". The "eth" may have come from the Greek translation
(Septuagint). Thus endeth today's grammar lesson <g>.
