After our summer vegetable garden burnt up, I am afraid to plant my winter veggies. But I did a few weekends ago. Mostly radishes are up and some peas. The lettuce and carrots aren’t up and they should be. I am not sure what I did to the soil — maybe the urea and straw I put two years ago? Or is it too sunny or do I need to water twice a day?
Anyway, my daughter’s eggplant is still huge and we are still harvesting eggplants. She planted carrots and lettuce under it and they were up within days. My carrots did not come up!
Any ideas on what’s going on here? I need help!

Hi Nina — I’ve just discovered your blog and am enjoying the cheerful posts. They bring back good memories of when I lived in the Santa Barbara area many years ago. That eggplant looks very robust, and the photo is so pretty with the big flower at the top. I can’t offer any advice for the carrots, as I have never grown any; but I’ll wish you good luck with them!
Thanks for the kind words, Meg. I’m glad you like my blog. My daughter just picked all the baby eggplants so I am sorry to say they won’t get any bigger! I am still going to try to eat them.
