I know, it's been a while

My sincerest apologies, reader(s)!  It has been a busy summer and I have been lax in my blogging duties.  Since my last post, I was able to gather a few more petite peppers, before Hurricane Superstorm Sandy hit.  I do have to say that the scallions grew fairly nicely and it looked like the garlic was well on its way until the storm.  Unfortunately, the beets didn't have a chance to develop fully.  My lettuce mix grew quite well, but were promptly eaten up, probably by bunnies.  The broccoli was looking really good until Sandy came and destroyed it.  I also think I should have planted it earlier in the season (well, duh, I was starting the garden in July!).

For next year, I (aka Jeffrey) want to put up a nice trellis for the squash and pumpkin to climb.  I think I'll also do more of the petite peppers and perhaps try out the beets again. Maybe I'll put a little netting around the lettuce mix and see if I can get it to grow a little fuller.  I would like to try the broccoli again, too, and the garlic if we get another share in the organic farm.  I'm excited to try again next year and perhaps keep things a little more orderly with the climbing plants in a separate box that has a trellis to climb.

What will I be doing during the winter months, you ask?  I have decided to take up sewing!!  My last attempt at sewing was back when I was in middle school.  I took a great class at one of our local fabric stores and made a pillow (which J uses today), a skirt, and a pair of shorts that never got finished.  Recently, I went back to the same store to take another intro class and got bitten by the sewing bug again!  This time, I hope I'm able to continue learning and eventually move on to sewing more garments.  Stay tuned!
