Below: “Last week’s harvest from my balcony garden in Takoma. Sadly, I won’t be getting much more out of this year’s garden. The tomato plants caught a fungus, the kale is being devoured by Imported Cabbageworm, the sugar snap peas gave me one good harvest and then dried up and died for unexplained reasons, and one of the herb pots turned out to have no drainage and became a nasty swamp with all of the rain. The basil and oregano (in a different pot) are still going like gangbusters. But the tomatoes I’ve gotten are delicious, and next year will be better!”
