Growing Smart I

So, now it's time to pull out the old summer plants and start thinking about a Fall garden.  But before we do that, I'd like to jot down some things we learned this year.
  1. No one knows everything.
  2. Everyone knows something.
  3. Sweet potatoes don't like rich soil.
  4. Too much nitrogen gives you too many leaves and not enough fruit!
  5. Tomatoes are having a hard time lately.
  6. Don't forget the toilet paper tubes for the squash.
  7. There are a number of good organic sprays.
  8. Square foot gardening can be carried too far.
  9. You can't plant too much parsley.
  10. You can plant too much basil.
  11. Sunflowers are very rewarding.
  12. Kids love to garden.
