Fortunately, stepping away a bit, our annual fall trip to Ocracoke Island, and this year, some home improvement work - then the winter, with its holidays and family time - bring a renewal, and I find myself sometime in January getting excited again, and deep into the next garden's plans and expectations.
So, now what, indeed! I've got lots of seed saving and documentation yet to do, particularly with eggplant and hot peppers. I need to be brave and dig for potatoes to see if there are any lurking under the thick overlay of out of control weeds. There may be a few late Dwarf project surprises (though the plants look just awful). Monticello is only a month away, so a presentation needs to be prepared.
What this all means is perhaps fewer blog entries, as I ease into my renewal mode. Or maybe the blog entries will be less about gardening, more about just daily life and observations...who knows!
