Because we can all learn from our own mistakes - and those of our fellow farmers. No-shame zone here folks, what's your Friday fail??? Ours this week - having someone help out by pruning our Concord grapes in early spring - every single fruit cluster gone! Luckily they recovered well the next season. We also planted a ton of asparagus crowns and strawberries when we first moved in 14 years ago without fully killing the existing sod and vegetation - the weeds won and every year I dig up and move some survivors to properly set up raised beds.
