This was a bad year, weather-wise, for starting a garden. It was a relatively cool spring, but worse than that, the rain just would not stop. All the way through May the ground was wet. I finally was able to till the garden in early June, but then it started raining again. By the time conditions were right for planting, it was relatively late in the season and my enthusiasm had dwindled considerably. The end result, no garden this year.
