1. It didn't matter where we were. Every time I took a picture of the twins, they were side by side, playing. They really put their bucket of pirates to good use on our trip. I am fascinated by how much their bond has deepened this summer.
2. During our trip I passed through the territory of so many blogging friends. I was disappointed that I didn't have time for any meet ups. It's hard when you are covering so much distance in such a short amount of time.
4. While we were gone, my garden was completely overtaken by weeds. Deluges of rain wiped out parts of it. I came back and my rows of onions and potatoes had both completely disappeared. My broccoli, cabbage, and brussel sprouts were demolished by bugs. Aside from tomatoes, kale, beets, and carrots, my garden was pretty much a lost cause.
5. I had planned to start a new spot for some fall crops, but our tiller, which was in the shop for over a month, wasn't fixed in time. I did manage to plant some kale, lettuce, and spinach. I hope 2014 turns out to be a better gardening year for me.
Readers, do you have any fall garden plans?
