It is finished...
Doug and I pulled up the last of our summer garden today. We (and by 'we' I mean Doug!) pulled up the cantaloupe vines and tomato plants. We left three tomato plants that are barely hanging in there and giving us a few tomatoes daily...but the birds seem to be getting most of those! Time to let the soil rest and nourish it with the compost I've been making over the summer. We'll begin our fall garden in late September.
The other day when we went grocery shopping, I actually had to buy zucchini and cucumber...not long ago we were giving the stuff away to anyone who would take it! All I could do was shake my head and laugh at the irony!
