Garden Logic

The incomparable Dogtor (pictured above, with baby AFB, from last summer) and I sat down to plan this year's garden.

The usual suspects (lettuces, kale, collards, peas, broccoli, beets, carrots, potatoes, tomatoes, zukes, cukes, corn) will be joined - hopefully - by pumpkins and sweet potatoes. We're also talking about constructing some homemade teepee trellises for the climbers.

Lessons learned last year: Don't let your broccoli flower when you are on vacation. Tomato blight is wildly contagious. If you get lazy about weeding your lettuce, you will eventually eat weedy salads.


  1. You've inspired Erv & me to get going on ours again this year. It seemed to do best when neglected. Go figure. I am posting something to you guys today!!!!
