It was a pretty terrible season for strawberries, at least those which I tried. I think all of the rain and the lack of sun conspired to result in a lack of flavor and pop. I am wondering if corn is headed the same way. We had some corn on the cob from Russo’s last night. I didn’t do the shopping so I’m not certain where it was from, however during dinner I remarked that it was the worst piece of corn I had ever tasted. One bite and I could eat no more, it had absolutely no flavor! My wife tended to agree. I know it is a bit early and this may have not been local corn, but I haven’t even had anything halfway decent.
It’s been a screwy growing season. I have been out of town a lot and as a result my garden is completely overgrown. I am fearful that disease is going to spread among the tomato plants. lettuce and greens grew well earlier in the summer at least, and the initial cucumber harvest is good.
