Plan Notes

2017 Garden Year. Due to increased work schedule and a much shorter growing season, individual crop evaluations are not listed this year. Our rhubarb had an outstanding growing season as did all the volenteer tomatos. Strawberries did rather well for their second year. We're anxious what they do this next growing season. Raspberries did so-so according to our deer population. ( smile ) Carrots, beans, squash and cucumbers did not do well at all. Hopefully 2018 will be a banner year.
