TGIF. Remembering the summer.
As usual, the tomatoes did pretty well and went totally out of control. We got about 24 pounds of stewed tomatoes out of the gardens. This coming year I think I will put in the Amish paste and try out a couple of the small sized plants that fit in small pots I have seen in the catalogs.
The blueberry was disappointing and died toward the end of the fall. I will try again--I am very stubborn. This tim it will be in its own pot and I will make sure the soil is modified to suit it.
Other plants that did well: strawberries, stevia, spearmint, peppermint, grapefruit mint, and chocolate mint. I will keep the first four but put in something else for the last two mints.
I have reconfigured the pots so I can reach all of them easily. That is always a problem considering how small my space is and how much I try to shoehorn into it.
The catalogs are coming in. I do love the wish books. I usually note everything I would love to try out and then cull the list several times before I start planting--and after.
See what comes up this year.
