How I spent my summer vacation - Part 1

Yeah, it's been a while. Now that I have non-crashing internet access again, I'll post - but it will have to be in spurts - new job and all. Thus, the "Part 1".

So, as I said in my last post, I got laid off. Freelance gig with them ended when they closed their doors and the few people remaining merged with another company. I got the flu - for two weeks, car got hit by a deer. Fun stuff. But at least I got to work on the garden.

I planted snap peas, lettuce, tomatoes, peppers, collard greens and cucumbers. And then the deer snacked. >:( Re-planted the tomatoes, peppers, collard greens and cucumbers. Plants are smaller than they should be at this point, but we'll see what happens. I also fixed the fence and bought a gallon of Deer-0ff. So now, only invited guests in the garden.

I also got to spend some time with the local wildlife:

More later in Part 2.
