New year brings new posts - as my faithful reader could easily tell due to the lack of posting, I experienced a sudden lack of motivation for the garden and the blog. Considering the amount of effort put forth towards getting it started earlier in the year, I can't say that it was a surprise.

So we rode out the year with a few fall crops (pictured right, a broccoli head that bolted before we managed to harvest it...hence it served as a kitchen ornamental instead). In the past week I've been going through the envelopes & envelopes of seed; saying that I overbought would be quite the understatement. I'm putting together a list of contenders for our limited space, and in the course of my research, I learned in The New Seed Starter's Handbook that strawberries should be started now if they are to bear fruit in the first year. So where did I stash that seedstarting mix?!

Chris! I'm back. All these people started looking at the blog again (and by all, I mean like 70)even though I hadn't updated since June. Are you growing again this year? What's the plan? Oh, and re: those fig preserves I told you I send? Stupid birds got ALL of them before me. This summer I'm not going to let them ripen on the tree.

Glad to hear from you and looking forward to more posts on mypatiofarm! Just posted a catch-up plan...and I'm watching my blueberries just as you should have watched those figs ;)
