great recession garden update: late summer
So... if basil and cherry tomatoes were all I needed to get through the summer, then I'd be set. I still have a good many large heirloom tomatoes on the way (I lost the tags, so I am unsure which kind they are). My 20 ft. long pumpkin vine is looking to give us two cantaloupe sized jack-o-lanterns: one for each of my kids. The butternut squash is laying out about a half-dozen small gourds and one large one. But given my "input costs," I would stand to lose money if this were an agricultural business. But thankfully it's not. And like the man at Stone Brothers and Byrd said, "keeping a garden is a lot cheaper than a paying a therapist."
