Something has devoured my lettuce! I haven't been paying as much attention to my little green barrels and they are mostly just little stems now. The Red Sail Lettuce is about the only thing left. It's rather dissapointing. It does however point to the fact that I just don't have time. Even for a micro garden!

I don't have the time to harvest, or the time to water. I suppose if there were a lot of plants it would be worth setting up a soaker hose. That would solve my watering problem. I am sure next year things will be a bit better in terms of harvesting. I hope to have a bit more time, or am i fooling myself? I'd like Jackson to have his own garden and I'd like some blueberry bushes and a few tomato plants at least!

Next door they have an insane amount of tomato plants. They are so tall they reach the second floor windows! I'm not sure what the plan is over there, but there are just a ton of little cherry tomatoes. Jackson loves to eat them right off the vine and I can't think of a better way for our little guy to get his veggies!

Cory was given a large bag of organic tomatoes from his dad's and i bought some more tomatoes, so plan to do some canning tonight or tomorrow. I am a bt nervous as I haven't done any canning before. I was hoping for my mom's help, but she is away this weekend and the tomoatoes just can't wait any longer. Wish me luck!


  1. You can always freeze if you're worried about whether something will can ok. That's what I do when I chicken out from using my pressure canner. :)

  2. thanks. yes i am a bit worried about canning tomatoes as I don't have a pressure canner! I think I may just have to freeze.
