Sat Jul 4, 2020, 09:56 PM

I'm so mad at my broccoli I could scream.

In past years it has sometimes bolted later in the season without preventing a good ongoing harvest, but this year it bolted right away and it's not worth the toilet paper on Shithead's shoe.

2020 strikes again.

3. I just let my basil all bolt not realizing the leaves all became too bitter to eat!

My first garden. Pruned it all back and after two days I see new leaves, crossing my fingers 🙂

5. 3 plants, two sweet basil and one Thai basil.

All delicious prior to letting them bolt 🙂. Also looks like a bumper crop of cantaloupe on the way.

6. Cantaloupe! Ah, I see you're in AZ. I'm in MA,

and once tried growing a watermelon. It was small and tasteless. At least my tomatoes are doing well.

7. I envy you your tomatoes.

I got a little late start the end of April and was advised to only go with cherry tomatoes. Plenty of blossoms but no tomatoes yet 😬. Also the heat stalled out my radishes except about 6 good ones. When did you plant?

8. We tried starting them indoors but those fizzled out,

so we bought bedding plants in the third week of May. We have cherry and large coming along nicely.

We have corn, cucumbers, beans, peppers, eggplants, and usually broccoli that lasts until the first frost. 2021 will be a better year... surely it can't get any worse!

10. I hope we'll be eating fresh tomatoes in a few weeks

Still pretty green now. Got a late start on everything because of the weather--80 degrees one day in April, hard frost the next night. I had to replant tomatoes and peppers 3 times, even with covering them.

Have blooms on the watermelons and cantaloupes now. Have picked some itsy bitsy strawberries and raspberries that were fairly tasty.

12. We go by the "no planting before Mother's Day" rule here in MA.

I don't know if we'd have the perseverance to plant three times!

13. That's a good pie combo! Our beans are almost big enough to start picking.

I forget what kind they are, probably just some generic green beans. I tried pickling some last year and they tasted terrible. I probably didn't follow the recipe, I'm bad about that.
