    Default Sorry, I'm back!

    I was so sure that I had posted a heads-up that I would be up to my eyeballs in the harvest and AWOL from this site. I guess amid the stress and chaos, I never did get to it, for which I apologize. We've had one hard killing frost, but the hardy vegetables (carrots, cabbage, beets, and the greens) continue to wait in patient silence to be rescued from the soil. Alas, the deer ate the swiss chard down to the roots, and demolished 5 out of 6 kale plants. Luckily, I have harvested most of what I wanted earlier in the summer, so today I just cleaned up the remainder and that much is in the freezer. There's a new dog in this narrative too, but that will have to wait for another night. I've been up at 4 AM for days at a stretch and was hoping to be snoring by 8 PM tonight, yet here it is 10:30 and I'm still trying to catch up. Thanks for your patience, all!

    Nothing to be sorry for, Islander! Especially not for being back, lol! (I know that's not what you meant.) Congratulations on your fine harvest. What a pity about the chard, though. I love chard! Just brought a bunch home from our organic coop today. Well, your friendly neighborhood deer will certainly be healthy.

    Sorry, because I meant to give you a heads-up that I'd be missing for a few days. Too much going on! Every year I say, "Never again!" And every spring I'm back at it!
