This is a thread to rant about what you want to do in your garden, but know will never happen because it can't.

My stupid garden wish is: To either grow iceburg lettuce in the summer or grow tomatoes in the spring or fall, so I can pick both at the same time to add to my lunchtime sandwich!

I wish Debby had made a visit to Austin, Texas instead of Florida.
I wish we didn't have the record 109* all-time June temperature yesterday.
I wish we didn't have another record temperature today at 106*.
I wish the birds didn't devour about 20 pounds of my tomatoes.

I wish my new garden was about 4 years old, instead of 4 months old. By then, I would have had a chance to improve this crappy soil that I have with lots more manure & compost. It's going to be a long process, but the end results will be great.

I wish I had fewer slugs.

I wish winter would just TURN INTO SUMMER instead of spending February through June making up its mind.

I wish summer got warm enough for tomatoes to grow, about 2 mionths earlier.

I wish I had enough sunny spots to grow more than 2 tomato plants.

I wish it stayed warm enough for them to ripen tasty about two months longer.

I wish the local sewage plant dried and bagged its Class A biosolids instead of GIVING them to Cedar grove so it could charge me $$$$.

I wish that new neighbor had not moved in, killed everything in her yard, and made me MOVE MY PERENNIAL BED.

1) I wish snap peas and lettuce were heat-resistant.
2) I wish rabbits were allergic to bean plants.
3) I wish cabbage loopers actually ate trumpet creeper.
4) I wish the new neighbors would have plans to cut down the big maple tree in their backyard, the one that hangs over my roof and drops branches on my hard, the one that floods my yard with seeds every spring, the one that shades too much of my summer garden area, the one that has a big nest of bees in the hollow trunk that won't leave me alone when I work on my pond... oh wait, that one might actually be coming true!

Cybrczch,
I had four trees cut down last year in my yard, to make way for my veggie garden. I, too, had the "neighbor's tree from hell!" It was a mulberry TREE that hung mostly on my side, threatening to fall on my roof. It had wonderful fruit, and stayed full of GRACKLES. Imagine the grackle cackle all summer long! Any fruit they didn't get ended up in my side yard, sprouting trees...

Well, since the owner was refurbing this Section 8 property in anticipation of selling it last December, and since it WAS vacant while they were doing the work, and, since my hurricane Ike fence still hadn't been put up yet, and the fence on that side of the property was wide open, and, since no one was home the day my tree man came, I HAD IT CUT DOWN...

AND,

Since the fence was also down on the back side where my other neighbor's trash tree was definitely blocking the sun from shining on the targeted spot for what is now Raised Bed #1, I HAD THAT ONE CUT DOWN, TOO (except, he was home and didn't care since I was paying for it...)...

A girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do...

1) I wish my neighbor would cut down at least half their 30, 150 ft. Pine trees that are jammed into a 1,500 sq. ft. area. It's absolutely ridiculous. I could double my production if they weren't there.

2) I wish the same neighbor would spray his whiteflies, instead of me having to sneak into his yard.

3) I wish June Gloom would stay only in June. Instead we now have "May Gray" and "No Sky July". This complaint, has been answered this year :)

4) I wish gophers weren't so cute lol My heart sinks every time I have to dispose of one. But there's just too many around. I have talked myself into thinking it's population control.

5) I wish I didn't spend a small fortune on grass a few years back.

6) I wish Hornworms only ate leaves. Too cool looking to kill.

7) I wish I'd have been gardening my whole life.

@Rick Corey:

What did your (new) neighbor do to kill Everything?

Our neighbor of many years likes to hyper-fertilize his lawn so that they have vast burnt-out spots and we (downhill) have to flush our poor willows to keep them alive. Naturally, we no longer have fish in our pond. :-(

Mostly, hired people to come in and chop.

She paid someone to cut down and uproot an azelea just going into bloom!
She not only killed everything living, but the single, small, living spot of good soil she had must have bothered her. She went out and bought huge HEAVY ceramic pots (25-30 gallons?) and sat them down on TOP of her only soil so that it would be compressed and shaded and generally subjugated. She must be Borg!

In the case of two nice big pine trees, she paid people to climb them, saw, grind and haul. It must have cost hundreds! Maybe a thousand bucks, I don't know, it ewas a three man team with a lot of big hardware and, probably, insurance and licenses piled higher and deeper.

Their truck kind of blocked me in when I had to go to work, but I said I could wait if I couldn't squeeze my car around it. Chatted, asked if I could keep the chips for mulching and compost and they said sure.

The Dear Neighbor must have come home between then and the time they were done. She didn't let them give away the wood chips, she made them haul all of them away.

>> hyper-fertilize

I'm not the most Organic guy in the world, and I'm not timid about chemicals, but it is a no-brainer that excess anyhing is toxic! Even water. Or oxygen. It truly takes ALL kinds.

>> Seriously, she doesn't sound like she is playing with a full deck.

The second one, I was sure of pretty early on. That by itself need not be a deterent to a beautiful friendship!

But I soon learned the first truth. EXCATLY what her problem is, I still am not sure, but it has to have several of these elements in greater or lesser degree:

- wants total control of all living things and considers "dead" a form of "neat" *
- reduced her husband to a shambling zombie
- picks fights and delights in saying rtidiculuous or contradictory things and gettin g away with it
- wants to look ritzy to her friends - in a manufactured home park! In an old, small one at that!
- called herself a gardener, but only kills things, and wnats to hire a "consultant" to make sure her Square Foot garden is disciplined and contorlled and "neat enough


The more help a man has in his garden,
the less it belongs to him.
- William M. Davies

* "dead" = "neat" reminds me of the classic ToS Star Trek episode "A Piece of the Action".
"I like a cooperative man.
Ain't no one as cooperartive as a dead man!"

I wish I could stop witting about what everything would look like if it was all finished.
I wish I could stop talking with myself while I'm gardening.(about things other than what I'm doing)
I wish I could could stop thinking to myself about wishing for things.(that aren't likely to happen anyway)
I wish I could concentrate better when things matter

Here's my 3 wishes (rubbing the buddha's belly).

I wish stink bugs, thripes, white flies, slugs (shudder), and tomato diseases didn't exist...sigh

I wish the weather I remember from 35 years ago was the same today (it was 85F in the shade at 9am this morning). I think I would be enjoying my garden instead of dreading the work.

I wish my dh was not in southern Afghanistan... he could be 'cooking' here in our garden instead of the desert with the giant camel spiders.

So, I'm in the lunchroom having a general conversation with my co-workers. And, I'm telling them how the rainstorm on my aluminum roof this morning sounded like "God, Himself, crying on my house... (no disrespecting...). And, how I was thinking about racing out in all that storm to cover my bell peppers, 'cause two of the leader heads were snapped off in yesterday's rain, and I thought our storms were over.

So, I mentioned how hard I was working on bells, and for how long, trying to get a hand sized pepper. And, a new co-worker agreed that it was difficult to get large bells in the south, but that they did where she came from in North Carolina. She grew up on a farm. So, we're talking buckets, and Earthboxes, and I happened to say that my wish today was for a gazillion gallon rain barrel.

And, she says, "I have a rain barrel -- it's almost brand new." "A lady was supposed to come get it for $20, but she never did..." So, if that lady doesn't show up today, guess who gets a rain barrel tomorrow?

Ain't God good???!!!

THANKS, BEE!
It's ok that the wishes won't be coming true in the order we post them. So, when can I expect the others to get done? LOLOL!

By the way, Park's "Jackpot" hybrid peppers produced 6"+ long monsters for me this year, despite the heat. I did plant them somewhere where they were in part shade in the spring and part sun later on. Kind of flattened instead of classically "bell" shaped, but tasty, juicy and thick walled. Not very many of them though; only about 2-3 per plant.

Going to my Mom's in Fl. next week & hopefully back home on the 24th. May get to meet another DG'er while I'm out of town. Once I get back I'll really hone in on the fall plan.

Still have to order the Arcadia seed from Johnny's, and then order the onion slips from Dixondale. A couple more seed trays will also help. I'll probably do a August 1 sow date for the Arcadia & the L.I. Improved Brussels Sprouts. Will just do the Root Pouches where the cukes & zukes sat in the raised bed, and let it rest till the spring.

The New Big Dwarf finally showed up from TomatoFest.

My late wishes. I wish that Bermuda grass did not exist. I wish I found housework even half as enjoyable as gardening. I wish 9 month schools were off in the fall instead of Summer so I could get more done in my vegetable garden while not teaching. The time I have off of work is the time it is too hot for most things to grow. I wish seeds germinated in under7 days regardless of variety. Waiting for those little babies I sometimes go crazy.

Wished I had really cleaned out the little bed where we did the watermelons. Got my first taste of a Crimson Sweet that's been refrigerated for a couple days. ABSOLUTELY, one of the sweetest WM's I had in years. Just guessing, a little bigger than basketball, weighed about 18 pounds. Still have another 2 or 3 Sweet's out in patch, some Congo's that look like they might be ready in a few days or a week. Curious to see how they taste...

Quoting: I wish that Bermuda grass did not exist


Me too! usually I dig it up whenever I see it breaking through the mulch, but it's been so hot this summer, I've not kept up with it. So far, it's not reappeared in the raised beds.

I would like a button, today, that I could push and the air outside would instantly start to feel like my A/C does when I'm standing in the kitchen near the vent...
