How Does Your Garden Grow?

My garden isn’t doing so hot.

Most everything is still living, but we don’t have very much produce at all. I have harvested 2 small tomatoes and a handful of peas and beans.

And that’s it.

I was thinking that I just needed to be patient, until I started to notice that my friends on Facebook and in real life have plenty of zucchini, beans, lettuce, and tomatoes.

I water regularly, use Miracle Gro, and the garden gets plenty of morning and midday sun, so I’m guessing the problem is inadequate soil.

We did not incorporate compost into the soil, since our compost pile was just begun this year, but I believe that would have helped.
