Dear Gentle Reader,
I am still here. It seems that I have busy with life, work, finances, and avoiding the hot weather. But, now that it is cool, I need to get back into the garden. So, tomorrow, I am going to get back out there and do a little Fall clean up and plant shallots. Since I didn’t have much luck with garlic (it was puny), I decided to try shallots. I like them better than garlic, and shallots are expensive. So it might be worth the effort. I am going to read up on them tomorrow morning. I want to make sure I do a good job this time.
I have decided that my grow boxes aren’t what I want. They seriously limit your space. I suppose that if you didn’t have much space to begin with, they would be a good thing. But otherwise, maybe not. I am definitely not going to grow tomatoes in self watering containers. Next year, those are going to have only herbs in them.
In any case, I am getting back into the garden. I will take pictures and post how things go tomorrow.
