I'm IN Victoria! PM me if you want to get together for a coffee or something while you're here.
Heather - sorry to hear about the house, but it must be a relief to have a decision made, as opposed to being in limbo. You'll be that much more prepared next year when you're ready to sell.
We are a chatty bunch - 1 day in, and the weekly thread is already on page 2!
AFM, today after dh's work we headed out to bil's farm (where our family vegetable garden is) and harvested beans, beets, and potatoes galore! I checked up on everything else - our corn is probably a writeoff (cold June, so it didn't germinate well or get started well), but the sugar pumpkins are great! I also planted a couple of canteloupe plants, but I can't tell yet if we'll get anything. We also picked about 10 lbs of blackberries for jam and beer (dh makes an awesome blackberry porter at Christmastime), then took a dip in their pool, which make all the toiling in the heat worth it. We're going to head out several more times while the weather's good - it is TOO HOT and I am just not handling it well.
Yawn - dd2 was up several times last night, and I am TIRED. Off to bed for me. See you all tomorrow!
