Summer’s End

It’s been a while since I paid much attention to my garden.  The chard is prolific, the lettuce is history, and the broccoli….well, the broccoli has beautiful lush leaves and not much else.

The majority of my heirloom tomato plants withered and died.  And the one promising-sized tomato was carried off by a band of squirrels. So I’m left with my scattered cherry tomato forest which somehow manages to produce enough to eat a handful every day.   The last day of summer and it’s a day of mowing, weeding, and cleaning.

    haha… glad to hear that I’m not the only one wondering why those darn squirrels need to raid the tomatoes… haven’t they got enough garbage cans to ransack?
    the worst part is they mock me.. I’ve found three nice large partly ripe tomatoes where they stole them but only gnawed at part of the tomatoes and then left them sit to rot!
