Considering enlarging the garden, need to consider racoons and squirrels.
- Compost Heap
From Left to right:
- Cherry Tomato
- A Row of Zucchini
- Another row of Cherry Tomato
- A Row of Zucchini
- Snap Peas
- Tomato + Potato
Lessons taught from this year: put the Zucchini on the end so it can "over flow, without shading plants nearby.
Lessons Learned this year: pinch the armpits of the tomato, this keeps the tomatoes from getting to leggy, it limits grow , but ensures that tomatoes that do grow , grow well. And I have no shortage of flowers ( as of july ).
Potted Basil is growing like gang-busters from last year's seed.
- Half Cherry Tomatoes / Half Plum Tomatoes
- Did much more nipping of flowers and get better results, could nip more flowers.
- Strawberry - Lots of fruit for one plant, could do more.
- cauliflower - let it go to see, need to harvest sooner.
- snap peas - Need to figure out how to get better yield here. Few plants were productive.
- Pumpkin / Squash and pumpkin squash
- Good Growth
- Good crop
- Took WAY too much ground cover. left the raised box , covered the lawn. Poor lawn.

- Many didn't get big, Colour was purple but I felt like they were green.
- thyme , several potted plant did ok, they seem a bit more delicate. In the ground samples did well. - at the end of the year everything was dug up due to Deck expansion

- This is an opportunity to create "full sun" positions.
- consider also: drainage , and root depth.

- soil was lightly ameliorated in spring
no notes , boo!
did lots of small tomatoesand then failed to harvest them properly and ended up with a lot of rotten tomatoes on the vine.
I did do some pinching of buds and flowers and that seem to help have better bunch of ripe tomatoes, but I really didn't give the garden that much love this year.
I also did curly kale and got a good harvest from that, using it for cabbage salad and stir fries. But I did get , towards the end of the season a very bad case of aphids or mites or something.
Notably one of the patches I did not plant at all but instead let grow what ever. I eneded up with a fantastic bed of corriander, thyme, sunflower, and a little dill.
