It seems a few warm days of 'Indian Summer' has made all the difference in our veg garden. We've been picking and canning up a storm the last few days, mostly green beans, but much to our amazement, the cucumbers and tomatoes have suddenly perked up and are actually ripening on the vine. And just when we were about to give up on them. Never Say Never!
Even so, there are times when you simply cannot fight nature. Or weather. Or any number of things that contribute to the success of growing things. Anyone who gardens has probably had such frustrating moments. I know I have.
I'm still learning and finding inspiration watching Gardener's World. (Follow the link to see the episodes.)
