It's easy to feel behind in a vegetable garden at this point of the year. There may be just too many eggplants to deal with, or maybe you are failing to pick the summer squashes when they are little and delicious and are allowing them to get tough on the vine.
Take comfort in the fact that however behind you are, I'm behinder. I just opened a box ordered from Burpee in April or May–'Purple Passion' asparagus, and 'Triple Crown' blackberries.
I don't think there is a chance of reviving the blackberries, but the asparagus crowns still seem firm–they might be worth soaking in a bucket and planting.
One of the reasons I'm behind is that I was just in Florida on business and to visit a friend for 8 days. On Sunday, I was admiring the grove of bamboo in the Morikami Japanese Garden on a day when the air was thick enough to eat.Michele Owens on August 12, 2011 at 11:32 am, in the category Uncategorized.
