Before we head out to the kayaks (lower humidity and temp - calm conditions - seems like the perfect thing to do), a few stats:
I've completed seed saving from 86 tomato plants (leaving 2-3 at most to go), 20 eggplant plants (4-5 to go), and 93 pepper plants (only a couple of those to go as well). Whew...spread out over a few months, it didn't seem all that bad. There is a massive stack of paper plates with dry seed out of the cats' reach in my office.
Today was another major milestone on my book, Epic Tomatoes - all captions and another set of edits, comments and additions were sent off to my editor last night. The latest I've heard is that the book will be available on December 10! Now I can focus on my talks for the Heritage Harvest Festival at Monticello, September 12-13. More on that later....off to kayak!
