I was pretty good this year. I watered, when I absolutely needed too. I went on pest patrol. I tried to stay on top of things. I'm happy to report I only killed a few things this year, which is good for me.
I started the season by leaving my 'Aunt Molly's' ground cherries in the tray I carried them outdoors with, which had no drainage. The poor things succumbed to rotted roots, waiting for me to get them in the ground. And I kept missing the basket of winged peas, with the hose. It figures it would be things I couldn't run out to the nursery and get replacements for.
Be honest, you lost a few plants, too. What did you kill this year?
