Wow, what a summer of planting and harvesting crops - especially veggies.
There is a MAJOR DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE NORTH AND THE SOUTH.
July and August are brutal to crops in the South. Of all the veggies we have planted, the
Egg Plant, Sweet Peppers and some Squash were the best. Carrots were ok as were the
radishes but TOMATOES were HORRIBLE. THOSE WERE A TOTAL WASTE OF MONEY.
The heat and wilt disease is just too much to deal with. I am a firm believer in the Earth box but I think it is too late for those as well. Go to earthbox.com to learn more and you can actually make your own earth
box for either the winter or next spring growing season.
It was fun, however, but when you quantify the money spent on Tomatoes and other certain veggies, plus the usage of watering - it is simply cheaper to buy at the local grocer or markets.
Best of luck in the coming growing seasons but believe me, I have studied and tried everything and the SOUTH is simply a different animal for certain veggies!!!
