Funky Apathy

It hasn't been a good summer for me or mine this year.

Well, the garden is having a great summer but that has very little to do with me.

I am still in my funk and what's worse is that an unhealthy dose of apathy has accompanied that funk. Funky Apathy isn't very fun at all.

But, the gardens are still doing quite well left alone to do their thing. We've had a lack of rain for a couple of weeks so I do water daily. I have weeded a total of one time this summer and the flower beds that weren't mulched look just terrible. Good thing they're on the side of the house and not the front, eh?

I would show you pictures, but I haven't felt up to taking any. Which is really too bad - the Hydrangea looks particularly beautiful this year and the Tall Phlox bloomed a week early.

So, why am I even bothering to post? Apparently I do care enough to let the few people who read this blog know that I am still alive and still gardening, just not very much and not all that well.

Fortunately, all of the vegetable plants are doing great and as long as the beds don't become infested with hungry green caterpillars I should get a nice crop this year.

I do care about tomatoes. That's something.
