This poor pepper plant has been slanted sideways by unseasonal amounts of wind and rain, then weakened by insufficient sun. It looks how I feel.
I am recovering from a bout of mononucleosis. Although Big Guy does all the heavy lifting around here, it's still not the best time of year to be sick on a farm. Please bear with me as I attempt to pick up the pieces of this farm life blog, and carry on.
Periodically in the last few weeks, I logged in to this blog. I'm not sure what I was seeking. Was it still there? Had it all been some kind of dream? If you are old enough to remember Pam Ewing's dream that Bobby died on the TV show Dallas, you know what I mean.
So to catch you up on what you (and I) missed in our fields these last few weeks, here's a recap: wind, rain, cold temperatures, repeat. Worry about eggplants and peppers. Thrill at the vigour of lettuces, potatoes, and beans. Be thankful for another season.
