Garden Tuesday – Why I Joined a CSA

Scarlet Runner Bean Crop

You know how crop is one of those words that can be singular or plural. You could point to a whole slew of corn and call it your corn crop. Well, in this case it’s definitely singular. You are looking at my scarlet runner bean crop. My whole crop. It’s not exactly a slew, now is it? To add insult to injury, what you can’t see is that on the other side is a big huge hole where some ungrateful bug as chomped his way through my crop.

Slightly better than pitiful
1/5th of Tomatillo Crop

I faired only slightly better with my tomatillos. Five. Maybe enough to make a small portion of salsa.

I’ll leave the veggie growing to others.

    Even the bugs laughed at my green pepper plants this year. It’s like rolled their compound eyes at me as if to say, “Is this the BEST you can do, lady?” So insulting. :-)

    I don’t have a green thumb at all. I tried to grow basil and thyme and wasn’t successful at either one. I think your cooking and photography skills more than make up for this year’s crops!!

    At least you have a good sense of humor about it! My dad bought some zucchini plants. They grew blossoms, he tied his hands behind his back so that he wouldn’t pick the flowers and thus prevent the zucchini from growing (even though he really wanted to have them, fried, with some ricotta). The flowers fell off. And nothing happened. ::Sigh:: sometimes gardening is tough. CSAs are awesome though.
