The only reason why I was interested in spinach is because I eat a lot of it every day in almost everything and it seems a little expensive around here, but I'm just in the wrong place to grow it.
Weâ€™ve had a garden every year for over twenty years and have grown a lot of different things. I have a lot of snails that eat most of the leafy vegetables and I'm constantly fighting off horn worms although this year has been pretty good. (Knock on wood)
I was looking for old photos of our early years when we grew corn, pumpkins, squash, peppers and zucchini to see if we ever grew carrots but couldnâ€™t find anything. Iâ€™ll have to ask my wife when she gets up after a late night of babysitting.
I really didnâ€™t start taking photos until I got a digital camera and then it became of everything. This is the earliest photo I can find which isnâ€™t too long ago and you can see weâ€™ve had lots of trouble with the heat for a long time. I even tried to use umbrellas during parts of the day to keep things from baking on the vine.
