Garden Woes

Our garden has been pretty disappointing this year. Here’s are some of my woes:

  • Blossom end rot on the zucchini plants (apparently due to a calcium deficiency, I’m learning on the interwebs).
  • Paltry raspberry yield.
  • Bitter beets (planted too late so it was too hot for them).
  • Funky-tasting arugula.

We’re not completely ruined, though. The tomatoes are looking great, the peppers love this heat (all billion pepper plants) and we haven’t had to buy cilantro or parsley all summer.

Oh, and this sweet pea is growing like a weed!
