this year was something of a disaster. lack of forward momentum (plus) grand plans (equals) frustration, disappointment, and weeds. just to name a few.
i think next year i will be simpler. smaller.
if there is anything that i learned this year, is that an automated watering system is my savior.
maybe i will do an entire raised bed with flowers for cutting. zinnias. sunflowers.
fewer tomatoes, fewer eggplant. more greens. more beans.
while the guilt still nags at me, i am feeling a little better about it. things are growing, even with my minimal input. sometimes you just need to admit defeat and do what you can with what you have. there are tomatoes and eggs and cucumbers. smile and take a nap.
