See? I grew a cabbage. Sauerkraut time!
Of course... this rich Smyrna soil has yielded up a lot more than that. I pulled in baskets of potatoes yesterday... and the tomatoes and cucumbers just keep coming.
Today I planted beets and cabbage again, hopefully for a fall harvest. My complete area under cultivation is about 25' x 40'. Not bad, but I do wish I had more space. I'd like an acre or so... but what can a poor suburbanite do?
(Oh... and by the way... those of you who have anonymously suggested I'm a "disgruntled Republican" because of my criticism of government spending, let me put your minds at ease. See? I have an organic garden. That means I CAN'T be Republican. Truthfully, though... I'm basically a libertarian. I believe individuals have a right to their own lives with little interference from the State. And spending other people's money is just plain evil. My guess is we have about 100 days or so until the next phase of the crash. Bush and Obama are both equally culpable [and economically clueless] and I couldn't care less whether a D or an R won the last race. The real problems are the Federal Reserve and the Bankers. That's all. Now... let's talk gardening!)
Anyone have any tales to share?
