Oh my stars, my little “urban homestead” couldn’t be sadder.
Purslane never came up, but I did get grass and anthills. Kale was a non-starter, now it’s too hot.
My garden. Benign neglect + long vacation + blistering heat and drought. On the plus side, since the beans were MIA I felt no guilt at all leaving it for two weeks while on vacation.
There were grapes on the vine when we left. Where’d they go?
Even my wild passion fruit are inexplicably dead, dead, dead. As are my tomatoes which fried in May (I just haven’t cleaned it up yet.)
I have a hopeless black thumb. And no patience.
Yet, hope springs eternal.
I’ll grow something to eat this year if it kills me. So I’ll start over with tomato seedlings for a fall crop, herbs bought from the grocery store, and onion ends.
Any suggestions for Zone 9 in the height of summer heat?
