For all my troubles....

At least there are still the simple pleasures.

Like a basket (Or three) of fresh tomatoes and peppers and such from our backyard. By the way, that's a 3/4 lb tomato sitting there... 12 oz! Not too shabby...

This year has not been our most productive, nor our least frustrating (Did I mention that we had yet ANOTHER broken bone on second boy, and then the third one, C~, has been in and out of the Dr. with some frustratingly elusive mystery ailment that causes lethargy, 101+ fevers and head & belly aches???) but to still be able to walk out back, harvest fresh food and enjoy it...
Well, I guess when all else fails you, you relish in the simple things.
Be well all!

That is quite the harvest. Sorry to read about the ailments and injuries. Hope all is feeling better soon.

Beautiful produce! We had a not such a productive first season on the roof-top.
It seems that you are making the effort to see the full half of the glass :-) That's the spirit! Be well.

Not jealous much!

Puts my wee harvest to shame, i suffered heavy losses to slugs though and I refuse to kill them so it's something I accept.

I am nearly at my humble target of 100lb for the year though so I have achieved what I want to.

Have plans for next year to increase this and make the things I wanted to see, work better.

Good to see you are still around, soz to hear about the troubles though. These things do keep us on our toes. Hope everyone is feeling a bit better.

I just found your blog today and love reading about your experiences. I am 62 and a year is a long time to wait,while learning from your mistakes, and trying a new way of doing things, but I,too, use the trial and error method a lot.Sometimes it works, sometimes not,but I do love trying new things in my garden and yard.
