I hate days that my gut is bothering me from top to bottom. Been more of those recently. I think I've identified a possible trigger though. So we'll see how the next week works out.

The tomato plants appear to like the relatively moist year we've had. They've sort of exploded all over their end of the garden, dwarfing the garlic and hot pepper on either side. All in all, the garden is doing very well indeed. Better than last year, though a bit later. The only disappointments are the second batch of garlic I put in as well as the peas and beans; not sure what I'm doing wrong there. But the herbs, onions, radishes, cucumber, carrots and beets are all happily doing their things. I should attach some pics some time.

The garden seems to be a bit of a neighbourhood attraction, oddly enough. People drop by and offer compliments, and apparently talk about it amongst themselves. A little odd considering it's actually a rather small plot (theobviousname calls it my "palliative garden" something I find amusingly accurate). However, if the attention helps me get acquainted with neighbours and encourages some of them to try their hands at it, I'm all good with that. We're going to need this sort of thing. I'm certainly learning things.

I am so sorry about the gut problems. Hope you have discovered the problem and can get it fixed. I have s slight problem with uncooked nightshade family items (tomatoe, potato, egg plant and peppers.

Lovely to hear about the garden. Nice that the neighbors are encouraging you.

Have gotten a couple tips and given out several of my own, so I think it's a win-win situation. Some seem unsure why I would do this. I mean people might *take* stuff. Fortunately this is a pretty decent neighbourhood so that paranoia is not common and not a useful guide to things.

As for the gut, I think I narrowed it down a supplement I was taking. The rest of the week has gone a bit better. It's not all back to normal yet, just better.

Hmm...

We should exchange pictures and discuss our gardens :3

I'm growing Cabbages, Lettuce, I have a plethora of onions, Squash and Bell Peppers.

For teh first time my peppers aren't doing well though. I'll be lucky to have any of it grow.

.....but I wanna see your garden if you can snap a few pics of it :3

I'm sorry to hear about your gut issues. You know what mine has been through recently, so I can relate. Still, no fun to experience.

I'm glad to hear that the garden is doing well. Have you expanded its size from when I visited?
