Top 10 Posts for 2009
Apparently when you have a blog, one of the obligatory posts at the end of each year is some sort of year in review. I’m going to do a couple things. First, I’m going to highlight the top 10 posts from the past year. By that, I mean the most clicked-on posts according to the stat counter. I have no idea if objectively they are the “top” posts.
This is an important topic, to be sure, but Top 10? Okay.
This is definitely one of the most common questions we get every year. People want fresh veggies as soon as possible, and it’s perturbing when they don’t appear right away!
Unfortunately, I don’t think anyone reading this post got their question answered, since I essentially told them that they are asking the wrong question. First, determine what you value in a tomato plant, then pick the plant that fits!
I know no one got a satisfactory answer from this post when they visited, because we never really determined what was eating our spinach either.

Ah, Blossom End Rot, the disease that is not a disease. Such a ghastly looking tomato it causes too!
Okay, I’ll guarantee you that people ended up on this post because they were searching for “fuzzy white caterpillar.” I hope they weren’t looking for anything other than pictures of cute, fuzzy white caterpillars. FYI, they are probably some type of tussock moth, but I’m not a bug girl, so don’t quote me on that.
The Family of 4 Garden and the plan for the garden that launched this whole blog project!
What’s not to love about big, orange, gooey, gloppy balls of stuff that show up on cedar trees in the rainy weather of spring? Well, a lot, actually. They don’t hurt the cedar trees, but I’m not a fan of what they do to apples!
The most popular post for the year: a look at the 3 different methods of training and trellising tomatoes that we used in the Demonstration Garden this summer!
There you have it! I’ll be back after the New Year to start sharing our plans for the 2010 Demonstration Garden.
