end-of-summer round-up

as the fall winds down, i’m already dreaming about next summer.  here’s a list of what i want more of, and what i want less of.

more heirloom tomatoes! so many to choose from, and i’m sure this is what heaven tastes like.

heirloom carrots – can stagger sowing them to get harvest throughout the season.

don’t bother with peppers – they don’t grow well and have very thin flesh.

green zucchini, not yellow. one plant per pot!

try watermelon again, and don’t put anything else in the pot, especially not stevia!

sugar snap peas, yum

more basil!! cut it down early to keep it bushy.

romaine, but not any other lettuce.

edamame was awesome, but only one serving on the whole plant.

basil with lemon is delicious, but lemon basil is disgusting.

eggplant…hmmm…not sure. but if i do, one plant per pot!

more spinach and more strawberries.

try green machine musk melon?  sweeter than most melons, compact plant.

If you think in terms of a year, plant a seed; if in terms of ten years, plant trees; if in terms of 100 years, teach the people.
