I don't know if folks still remember me. I was posting this spring
and summer and starting my first veggie garden. In mid- late june a series of events:
1. Late June heavy rains in my area caused the ceiling in much of my condo to collapse forcing an emergency move of our stuff (a lot of which we lost) that remained into a storage area and us to sleep on the floor, temporary housing, etc for almost 3 months.
2. Just as that was getting better my SO suffered a major medical problem causing him to be out of work and much stress and heart ache in our lives.
3. I skipped a semester at law school to care for him and start a new (better paying job) to support us, fix our place (denied by insurance for the claim... grrrrr!!!).
4. I saddly had to let the garden completely go, overgrow and really make me depressed because I just slaved over it and worked so hard, and got so much guidance and help and friendship from so many people here. I was too embarassed to post, I didn't know what to say ;( I just let it get to be a total wreck, and I was too overwhelmed to deal with it.
But NOW.... the condo is back with all its roof and walls, our bed is our bedroom, we have couches, we have much more clothes to wear and our kitties are running happily around our place. He is back at work and 100% healthy and I am going back to school in the spring
. I love my new job and am keeping it when I go back to school (I go part time at night).
And as a garden update.... even though my garden and yard look a horrible mess (I still haven't gotten the motivation and love for it again after the mess that was this summer) the spaghetti squash I planted from seed
in the early summer took over and is producing to the point we it about 3 times a week. its amazing, after so long for it to come back and just produce like that!
