Sorry for my absence the last few months. Group hug
We had an incredible, crazy, hectic, wonderful summer and fall!

My semps had a super summer too! I had so many chicks from C. William, Red Beauty, Artist and a few others that I was selling them in 3" pots at the farmers market! Thumbs up

We pulled a LOT from the garden this year. It was our largest vegetable garden ever. Amazing corn, potatoes, peppers, pole beans, red kidneys, zucchini, cucumbers and many herbs.

Tomatoes did not have a good year. Apparently they had blight and we weren't sure what was up with them, we had never experienced that. We pulled about a bushel of tomatoes late in the season though.

Banner year for apples too. I put up 6 gallons of applesauce and filling for 8 apple pies. Gave away 5 bushels and we'll get back some hard cider! Lovey dubby

Big Grin Big Grin I lost 45 lbs. too! Should have mentioned that first! Big Grin Big Grin
I hope everyone is doing well! Group hug

A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort!

Volume Paddy.

Wow, Terri it is so good to see you back. Hurray!

It does not surprise me that you lost 45 lbs, just reading about what you have been doing makes me feel like I might have lost a pound or two. Whistling
You have been one busy lady.
Good to have you back. Group hug

I know I have had a productive and fun summer.
This spring we had the Hybridizing Clinic with Kevin Vaughn. Then lots of company from around the world.
Visits with Chris Hansen, Tom and Matts from Mountain Crest Gardens, and great new semps from Europe.
