The Twists That Bind

Home Grown Mutants

Look what I dug up! It’s a twisted mutant of a Kaleidoscope Mix Carrot from Burpee.

This year has been a gardening year, as I hope all future years of my life will be. I’ve tried my hand at square food gardening. I’m not sure If this will continue year after year. I prepared the soil by the book and it seems to be too nutrient poor. The book claimed that the compost added to the soil would be sufficient for the session. Wrong!  Also, the soil has a little too much drainage, so I have to water it more than I think should be necessary. Next year I’ll probably either double the depth of the square foot planters, or possibly switch to a system that requires less daily watering.
