Oh man, can you believe it’s been a whole year since my last gardening post? Last year’s garden was basically left to its own devices due to our busy summer schedule, and what’s worse, our even busier fall schedule prevented us from properly preparing our garden for winter! So this past weekend I did my best to get everything back in order.
This is my second year of vegetable gardening, and I’m learning some hard truths this year. Mostly, I’m learning what crops do well with our family’s summer traveling habits and the weather here in Maryland; I need to find crops that like the heat, don’t need a lot of watering, and can withstand neglect a week or two at a time.
