Well, I did not do well with this last year.  Probably because I sort of lost interest in my garden, and yard.  Ugh!  My garden actually grew pretty well, but I need to reduce the amount of plants and seeds so that my beds(and myself!) don’t get overwhelmed again.  I was so excited to grow 2 pumpkins to full size.  That was a new feat for me!  I had a ton of onions, but they were all very small.  I only ended up with a few potatoes, also small.  I think I tried to cram too many into too small of a space.  I also had a bumper crop of apples, but they were also small.  I just read an article that says to reduce the bunches to about 3 each so that the apples grow bigger.  Now I know.

I will take the lessons I learned from last year and apply them this year and see how it turns out.  I’m just starting to go through seed catalogs so stay tuned.
