Ignoring The Garden

This year my garden has been a bust!
Everything pretty much dried up, and died. 
I did get the tomato plants up and going, but the fruit
never developed into more than a golf ball size.
And the taste wasn't good at all.
I've NEVER had this kind of season...
drought is the worst, rabbits & armadillos nibbling
what DOES start growing, and just overall BAD
for everything.
LESSONS LEARNED!
>Fall soil prep is key... tilling in the lime
>Fall gathering of leaves is critical
for composting and for mulching later
>Putting down that mulch when the plants come up!
And I'm already dreaming about next year!!
