Every spring we get pumped up to have a vegetable garden. We order seeds and buy starts, plant everything and rejoice as things germinate and grow. However — both my husband and I dislike working outside in the heat and as the summer wears on, we neglect our garden. Last year we forgot to dig the potatoes we had planted — and after the plants had died back, we had a heck of a time finding the potatoes when we remembered they were out there. Last year I decided that a beautiful doe was welcome to graze on my squash and beans, never dreaming that she would decimate them all, as well as everything but the corn, which for some reason she ignored. One year my husband with a weed whipper, nonchalantly breezed past foot high tomato plants that were still sitting in pots, waiting to be planted. Zip. They were reduced to an inch tall — and he never realized what he had done. Gardening is sketchy business around here. Might be a good idea for us to stick to the local Farmer’s Market for our produce.
