The calendar pages turned, summer arrived, and I worked the busiest summer at my legal practice that I ever have since launching a solo practice in 2005. Mother Nature had my back; gentle and frequent rains combined with cool temperatures kept the soil moist during my neglect. And the plants put forth a harvest. August arrived. We left the country to visit Iceland and the same time an exterior house painting trampled all over the garden.
September has brought the heat we normally have in July. I've watered a few times, but have really ignored the garden. And still it produces. Earlier this week I broiled tomatoes with sweet peppers and onion, sprinkled with salt. Into the food processor, add some lime juice, and you have a very mild salsa. Perfect to top a burger or plate of slow cooked pork.
2017, the year I ignored our garden and ended up with a continual harvest. My interest in gardening has been sparked. What might happen if I actually gave it some attention?
