When you start over a month late, and you nearly kill your vegetables by leaving them without water for two days on a hot patio, and then you put manure that is too fresh in your garden boxes, this is what happens. Oh well!!
This is one day after planting them.
Poor little peppers!
And then a week went by. A very hot week. A week in which the hottest temperatures were not supposed to happen for another month. And the plants were still young and weak.
Oh, the dead pumpkin and sad peppers and squash!
Two tomatoes bit the dust.
Maybe one or two of the tomato plants will be strong enough to survive.
But we still have pretty June roses to look at when we are not lamenting over our lost opportunities to have fresh peppers and pumpkins.
Next year the garden will be fantastic. We hope.
