Last year I grew some veggies. They all started great, I used them in containers and I was happy. Until the heat wave came through and I don’t know what I did.
Either they were scorched early on or I over watered them. I don’t know. My zucchinis had beautiful flowers but no veggies. I tried cross polinating, but I think I was too late.
So I decided with my new busy schedule with work, this summer I’d let it go.
Wrong. I guess I like pain.
One of my co-workers is an avid gardener and once we got talking the bug hit me like a ton of bricks. I got out my seeds (never planted from seed before like this) and bought a 17 starter growing kit.
I planted some tomato seeds which may be too old to use, along with Italian zucchini. The tomatoes I pray really grow because they are the Italian roma’s that are from Sicily. They are the best tomatoes I have ever had in my life. My father in law is kind enough to send me some more seeds so I have some that are fresh. We’ll see if that makes a difference… I sure hope so.
Maybe if I don’t try so hard, it will work better.
I refuse to believe gardening is too hard for me to do. Not because it is easy – I don’t think it is easy. If it were, I wouldn’t be having such issues each year. But I must keep trying until I succeed. I guess that’s my nature when I see something with value. Value for me is food! And I really want fresh tomatoes, eggplant and zucchini for my recipes – like my eggplant and zucchini recipe.
I’ll keep you posted like I did last year. I’ll try and post some pics too. I’m sure I’m not the only one out there wondering why on earth can’t I make a go at wonderful gardening?!
