The August Garden, No Wait, It's Almost October

I want to say that this is a picture of the garden in August, but it's not. It's from today. I knew I would get to the point where I would stop blogging for a while. I still feel like it is August, because I still don't have a nursing job. My husband and I planned on me having a nursing job by June. This fall is the first fall since I started Kindergarten that I didn't go to school on "The First Day of School". Even the year I took off, I went to the first 6 weeks before I decided to drop out, and quit paying to make up my mind.

Life is in limbo, and so everything is just too busy. My husband started art school this fall, so he has really enjoyed drawing our harvests. I've been on the job hunt, and substitute teaching and continue to nanny in the meantime.

My blog title fits right now. My garden is VERY messy.

This summer has been a much different experience than last year! We've made a lot of salsa, but I don't feel like we got to that overwhelmed by tomatoes feeling that we did last year, and I think it mostly has to do with the heat.

Our tomato plants are absolutely LOADED with green tomatoes right now. We haven't had a ripe one in about a month. I think the insane heat and humidity prevented the plants from pollinating, and gave us a bunch of cracked tomatoes.

I wasn't very good with watering, or feeding. I just got lazy. We've LOVED all of the peppers we've gotten this year.

I'm going to have to put up another post about what worked and what didn't. For now, at least I made a post for the first time in almost three months.
