<p>Well there were more than one of them.  There were, however, only 3 snap peas.  And the raspberries are pitiful this year.</p>

<p>My garden isn't doing well either.  My yellow pear tomatoes are doing okay for cherry tomatoes.  Beef steaks, the plants are huge, just no tomatoes.  I think I might can three cases--normally I do at least 5 or 6.  Noone around here is getting tomatoes.  Peppers in the front garden have done well.  In the back, not so much.  I think I got one wimpy bell pepper.  And not sure what happened to my zuke.  Luckily a friend had good luck and shared some which I shredded and froze for zuke bread this winter!</p>

<p>The only thing growing well for me is some elephant ear plants that I planted in the spring.  Some of them have gotten huge.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I don't do vegatable gardens anymore since I always seem to kill them.</p>

<p>  I actually  had success despite my black thumb of death...  Billions of grape tomatoes, afew  big tomatoes, cucumbers green beans, swiss chard , lettuce and REALLY nice heads of  Bok choy.. not much sqash though.  I really feel odd having to beg  for zuchini !   Oh, I also have some purple cabbage that despite infestations of  cabbage worms, are making little round heads of cabbage now.. they have a while yet.</p>
<p>   I was hoping to put in  a late planting of peas and more lettuce .. not sure how that will go.</p>

<p>This has been a good year for tomatoes,peppers and cantaloupes.  The cantaloupes were volunteers from the compost, so they are a bonus!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Zucchini, which most people have too much of... not so much.  The deer love them.  They also loved the peas, and grazed them down to nothing. <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/mad.gif" title=""></p>

<p>I wish I'd grown some potatoes.</p>

<p>Here is one of the elephant ears I was talking about that is doing real well.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Granted I planted 3 along this wall and only 2 have grown but I think next spring I can split this one and put some in the middle to fill the gap.</p>

I doubt it.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I have a black thumb so I have given up on vegatable gardens. I just try and keep my flowers and plants green or colored as they are supposed to be.  I was just suprised at how quickly these grew and how big they got.  Now I am happy that the other ones I planted in this area didn't grow.  It would have been to many. </p>
