Nearing the end

Posted on

This week has been a bit unproductive for me.  Remember those immune boosters I shared with you a couple weeks ago?  Yeah, well, they work a little better if you actually use them.  For some reason I’m fairly faithful with applying them to the little guy, but it’s easy to forget about myself.  I’m so thankful for my sweet hubby & his willingness to stay home & give me a little break so I could get back on my feet.  I’ve bounced back pretty quickly, but it’s amazing how quickly those little daily tasks that you don’t really pay much attention to, pile up.

I’ve neglected my blog here for a few days in an attempt to make some headway, but I thought I’d make just a quick appearance today to share some of the last fruits from our garden this year.  We’ll have a bit more of a harvest for sure, but there’s no doubt it’s winding down as you can feel the chill of fall in the air.  No complaints here, I adore this time of year!

I’ve purposefully not shared much, if at all, about our garden this year, since there was very little to share.  I hesitantly made the decision in the spring to make major cutbacks to my normal garden plans.  With our garden space located between our garage & the alley, behind our house, I couldn’t figure out a way to tend to the garden {that I’d be comfortable with} with the little man.  We do use the stroller,  but let’s be honest, there is definitely a time limit on how long that’s fun, for him & therefore for me as well :).

So, all my hopes & dreams of a big beautiful garden dwindled to tomatoes & peppers.  It worked.  I’m glad I didn’t have more to tend to, at least for this year.  And, despite the lack of variety, there has been no lack in production.  I’m currently looking at buckets of produce in my kitchen & have a little canning party planned for myself this evening.  I’m happy.
