There isn’t much to say. The tomatoes were late and came all at once. The commercial growers were in the same boat. It was just at the end of the season that the price dropped from $18 for a half bushel to $12. We’ll plant Romas again; but I am not sure about Bonny Best.
The onions did nothing. Had they been grown from seed, they would have been Spring onions in the Fall. As they were grown from sets, they were pathetic little onions for size, but quite tear inducing on the chopping board.
The leeks had long white stems; but they weren’t very thick. The trenching method works well. They just didn’t get the length of season to grow.
The herbs had a very slow beginning and then bolted when the heat came.
It wasn’t our most successful year. However, most of the folks to whom we talked said the same. When it comes to gardening, boasting divides and moaning unites.
