How was the veggie season for you?

Hi Everyone,

I live in Jersey CIty. I had a great year with Burpee Sweet Red Pepper plants and the smaller Cayenne, Habaner, etc. but this year the tomatoes just did not do as well. I chalked it up to the cold start for the season. Anyone else find this?

Visit www.mycitygarden.net for photos of the garden this year.

Best,

C

I also had a sluggish tomatoe season here in Oregon. We had a cooler season and the cherry tomatoes were the only steady producers.

Re: How was the veggie season for you?


Last year was my first year gardening at my new house, so at first I was worried my problems with the garden were user error. I came to find that a lot of gardeners - like you - had similar problems. I was sure I would never have tomatoes, until my tomato plants started to grow like crazy in mid-July (I'm in Wisconsin). I had a TON of tomatoes throughout the late summer and into fall. Once the frost set in, I removed all green tomatoes from the plants and ripened them in a box with newspaper. I had plenty of tomatoes well into December. We, too, had a cool, wet summer, so I assume this was the cause.

 I'm hoping for a better crop this year!
