Gardening was not really successful for me this year. June in Washington was wet and cool. My summer was taken up by the forced remodel. A few things were awesome - blueberries, rhubarb, raspberries, blackberries, the herbs. All now packed carefully in my freezer. Others just didn't do much - peppers, strawberries, tomatoes. I've got tomatoes now, but considering that there are 6 bushes, not much.
The beans are just now ready, in mid September. Really late. I planted these guys from seed one warm afternoon when I was on my own.
Now, I have help. She's six and my favorite helper. Her mom will marry Step Son in about a week. She will be my step, step grand daughter. I can't wait. She calls me Meemaw.
