warning -- picture heavy
2004 -- year two of this enterprise -- we had a tent and tables and the famous red/white truck ...
by year 4 we knew how to grow fabulous squash ...
year 6 -- the first solo adventure - new spot and almost weed free .. and I started blogging about it and all the other wackiness in my world.
2010 -- I'd mastered the watermelons .. and planted way to many varieties -- and moved up to a "green" truck -- that actually had a radio ...
2011 -- battled the damn deer .. the damn things ate everything and I mean everything.
2012 -- drought and heat ... but fabulous watermelons .. while they lasted
so, the big decision -- not to garden in 2014. time for a break -- it's been 11 years of hard work, fun and good people. but I'm a bit tired, cranky and over-scheduled. I waffled for most of the fall and on NY Eve it was the silent resolution -- the seed catalogs came and I tossed most of them in the recycling (that was hard) ... and late this winter, I told Kevin to plant it all, I wouldn't be gardening. He planted corn on Tuesday -- on all of it.
There be a garden -- although not large -- some melons, some pumpkins and of course, the squash ... I may make it to market if I have an abundance of something -- but I doubt it ..
There will be more time to sew, to read and to travel ... and to do -- well nothing ... it's been so long I'm not sure how to do "nothing." ..
