AM NOT A TOTAL FAILURE
Here's the totals:
? Tomatos (there is no official count, hubby eats them as soon as they are ripe - I never even see them)
1 Plethora of green grapes
6 strawberries (so far, still growing!)
So my black thumb is getting slightly greener.
On a brighter note, I was able to thieve the literal fruits of the labors of others.
One of many buckets o'lucious sweet peaches.
My dining room table is somewhere under that herd of ripening pears. Really.
And I will be canning all weekend. Anybody want to come help?
