Shame on me!

I can't believe how long its been again since I've blogged. The garden - it's over for the summer here. Everything wilts and dies this time of year since its so hot. I had a pretty good haul this season though.
Lettuce - lots!
Corn - no. it didn't get its ears before the heat took over. that was too bad.
squash - yep! mostly zucchini.
one little tomato - maybe another before the heat gets it all
broccoli - yes!
peas - unbelievable - i had tons of peas. i love just eating them right there in the garden, many didn't even make it into the house and maybe only one batch got cooked. i'm doubling up next year because i can't get enough of them.

But i do think i'm going to shrink the garden again for next year. 6 boxes is still too much for me to keep up with. i need to keep it small so i can keep up with the weeding and taking care of things. too much stuff and i get overwhelmed and don't do it at all.

now i have to go catch up on how everyone is doing. i'm 2 weeks out from another competition so that's where my focus has been for the past 3 months.


  1. SHAME on you! ;-)

    You were missed. EG was saying you must be in competition and too busy for us. Yes, we blogged about you while you were gone. LOL! It was all good.

  2. LOL, thanks Granny. It's nice being talked about - in a good way! I do get totally one track minded during comp season. :)
