The Ghetto Garden has not done so well this year for a few reasons, some of them my fault. I turned the soil but didn't amend it much, some post-planting manure and compost but that's about it. I also haven't let any of it lay fallow in years, so the soil is depleted anyway.
And then it was a hot summer. We had a stretch of 90+ days which I personally loved, but the plants found fussy to deal with, especially on days I didn't water. The days I did water, I can't say that I didn't overdo it sometimes. Too much water contributes to the poor soil problem.
And the things left undone! I have to shore up one of the boxes, fix my gates, lay down a layer of yet-to-be-procured mulch, move some rocks, haul away some junk.... The list is long, my friends.
