Do you know the causes for failure?

 

I have several dud peppers this year and it sucks. But my tomatoes are raging, whereas last year they sucked. No matter what measures I take - companion planting, rotation, ferts, compost - I get the feeling there is a rotational garden karma thing going on. Sorry, you're not having everything go good. Then I look at some people's gardens and *everything* is going good. Who knows...

But I was literally just thinking about next year's peppers and seeds 2 days ago ;)

Made garlic fried chicken and grilled potato salad.

Trying to will my tomatoes to ripen. 

Hauled in almost all my garlic.

Planted 2 beds of beets, 1 of coriander. 

Will plant another bed of cukes. 

Ordered a new dehydrator (old one broke).

I bought a Bonnie ghost on a whim. Didn't need it. It sucks. Could be me or Bonnie. I'll blame Bonnie.

I've cut them into rings and pickled them in the past for sandwich extras. Worked well.

Homemade pickles. Cukes are coming in like crazy.

Picked first peppers - piment d' bresse. First time growing them. They have nice flavor - smoky, earthy, punch of fruit.

Been grilling for almost a week straight, since it's too hot to cook indoors.
