Ginnie BakerIt’s now the middle of August and I’m rather disappointed in my garden this year.

I don’t know if it’s because of the unusual weather we’ve had, with too much rain and cool temperatures, or if it’s just “one of those years.”

The tomatoes are a major disappointment. By now, I should have been canning for a month but I’m just getting started.

The beans have been outstanding and so is the squash so I really shouldn’t complain too much. I worried about the apple trees with the harsh winter we had, but they are loaded with apples.

A friend’s father said a couple of years ago, “When you have a bumper crop from the garden, put up everything you can because you’ll want it when you have a bad garden year.”
