Because of the heat, we kind of gave up on the garden. We decided to harvest out carrots and either freeze them or use them. Much to our surprise a few weeks later something started growing!! I had planted five things, but when the fifth one didn’t grow, I forgot about it and forgot what I planted. Well, I guess the heat did some amazing things, because it just kind of took over and now the cucumbers(?) are sprawling healthily with lots of flowers all over! Hopefully in a few weeks we can report that we have fresh homegrown cukes!
Don’t over water, don’t underwater, and use the internet to find information on how to prevent issues. I found this carrot and a quick google search led me to this resource which gave tons of information just on carrots. If you have a lot of carrots growing in your garden, like we did, become familiar with it. This goes for any other plant. Get to know the best way to grow, harvest, and store that crop.
