My Name is Jen, and I am a Gardening Disaster.. Hi Jen…
Gardening should be relaxing, it’s frugal and a great way to have you own organic produce.
Well, it’s all of those things if you can garden. And apparently I can’t. It’s a mess. If it’s not one thing it’s another.
One year we were having great luck.. and then the gophers hit. Then one afternoon my husband watched (in cartoon style) the gophers take an entire corn plant!! Just right done the hole! It was something straight out of Looney Toons!
We fixed the gopher problem.. but then the fungus stuff hit, growing all over everything. A powdery substance that has the power to make super tiny, very ugly veggies. We have had ants eat an entire crop of grapes. And birds peck the tops off all our tomatoes..
I’ve tried growing from seed, growing from plants even sticking sprouting onions and potatoes from the pantry into the ground. Basically my success varies from (at least) mediocre (to worst) a disaster.
This year we are pretty much giving up..but I did want a basil plant. So I picked one up at Trader Joes.. guess what.. yup, gets to my house and gets sad and yellow.
What are you a disaster at..?
