Am I the only one afraid to update wordpress? I always slack at doing so because so many times, something has gone awry. I can’t count the number of times I thought I had lost this website for sure. I can’t take the stress but I also can’t stand seeing the update reminder looming. *sighs*

Garden Update

We finally have tomatoes. And lots of them! I am starting to finally believe that we will end up having way More than we can use. Crazy. That has never happened when I’ve gardened in the past. Now if I could just grow ONE zucchini. That seems to be the elusive veggie. I have a watermelon doing wonderful and cucumbers coming out of my ears but a zucchini is too much to ask for apparently.

Garden Time!

After my marginal success last summer, I am ready to get back to gardening again and see if this year brings us an increase in bounty. Last year my biggest success was tomatoes but even then I didn’t get enough tomatoes to justify the money I had spent on the garden box, soil and plants. This year I could reuse my box so that cost was $0. Plus I was able to find some garden fencing thrown on the curb to increase my planting space. We shall see what happens.

One of the beds I made next to the house. I also have a 4×4 raised bed as well as a growing number of 5 gallon buckets on a table.
