Today was slow. We finished cleaning the last 20# of strawberries. I took my daughter grocery shopping as she just moved into a new place. She wanted to go to several places, which took more time. I came home and we had a large salad for lunch and then rested for awhile. We don’t have air conditioning and I think the heat slows us down.
When it cooled off, we fertilized the tomatoes and what other plants are still alive in the hoop house. It hasn’t done well, which I think is partly because we have had temperature issues and partly because with my knee issue, it has been semi-neglected. I am just really happy we have a Sunday market that I can purchase products to fill in the gaps. The tomatoes, however, are happy and have lots of little green tomatoes on them. We should have a good crop. The potatoes have died back, so I should go looking underground and see what is there. We only planted about 20 feet for an early harvest. The rest we planted outside and I am hoping they are doing better.
When one can’t get it all done, it’s best to just be thankful for what one can do. There’s always next year, right?
