Well, I think it is time to admit defeat. My garden just isn't doing so hot. The plants themselves are growing just fine, but they are not going to produce anything...at all. I am pretty sure that there is just not enough sun in that spot (or any spot in our back yard for that matter). I knew this was possible, but was hopeful that I would be wrong.
I was pretty bummed for a while, but I am pretty much over it now. I am going to dig up the plants in there pretty soon, and find some things that grow well in shaded spots. Hopefully we can still grow something that is edible!
