Nope, not yet.

We planted some beans but we planted too late in the season (for Florida) and ended up losing them to pests despite my best efforts.

I am going to try and grow some quinoa though, once the weather cools.

That's so frustrating.

I've never grown quinoa. It would probably bomb in my cool New England climate, which is a bummer since we eat a ton of it.

Not this year :( I just couldn't manage it with the baby, especially since we just moved here last winter and I'd have to get the ground ready and build the raised beds and wire everything off (lots of hungry bunnies around here, I've discovered). Next year he'll be able to run around with his big sister though so I'll be able to grow some noms!

Nothing wrong with just eating it. ;)

What'd you grow this year?

We don't seem to have too many bunnies, just lots of groundhogs. Good luck next year!
