animal lover, gardener, knitter, and gourmet cook


If nothing else, my garden is doing really well this year. The past couple of years, I’ve had issues with my tomato plants (usually they are on their way out by this point in the season), but they are doing really well this year. I bought a number of disease-resistant varieties to try and all are performing well so far.

The rest of the garden looks pretty good, too. I harvested a bunch of onions today and some were decent in size, which isn’t always the case. My garlic harvest was disappointing, though. I had good germination rates, but the heads turned out small. I’m going to do some additional fertilizing next year and see if that fixes the issue. And, I tried some of those long skinny cucumbers and am liking those, too.
