Tomatoes not red yet, but tons here and in garden.
Not sure my zucchinis pollinated yet.
Peppers and green beans are doing well. Both bell peppers and jalapenos have started and they grow so fast.
More tomatoes. If they finally take off, I’ll have way too many.
My potatoes blurred in the picture.
Sideways picture of red lettuce and arugula and oregano. My herbs did wonderfully. We’ve been eating lettuce for months and herbs: cilantro, oregano, thyme, sage, basil, parsley. My tarragon seems to be the kind I don’t like much.
I decided to give the garden report since my father just fell again. HARD. Talked me into not calling an ambulance despite being quite confused. So I have to wake him every hour or so. Watching Frasier as well. No idea if I’ll get to dose off or not. I hope I’ll be asleep when you read this.

I love words so I write them. I’ve been doing that since I was old enough to read. I am a published literary writer and I was an adjunct English professor at Northern Michigan University for many years. I write and live and love off the grid on 35 acres and a trout stream in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula with my son, Joshua, who has Down Syndrome, and with an English Shepherd dog named Maggie, and with my husband when he can make it here which isn’t often. This blog started out being about my work, and it will continue to be. ( I’m working on a novel about premonitions and dreams.) But this blog is also about living off the grid and about my experimentation with diet—most recently the Carnivore Diet. I started on the Ketogenic diet, but have moved into Carnivore. How long, I don’t know. But I’ve become interest in the effects of diet on not just my health, but on creativity. And I’m interested in the effects of the diet on my dreams.
Ah, dreams... The day before my son was born, my mother “dreamed” or was told my son would have Down Syndrome, something she told my brother ahead of time. I’ve never known what to make of that. So I’m interested in prophetic dreams, lucid dreaming, creativity and dreams, night terrors. Who isn't interested in that? I’m interested in Freud (more Jung) and Einstein’s theories of time and how their ideas inform my dreams. I’m interested in mining a deeper relationship with a dream world not confined to daytime experiences, and how the night might inform a more fully imagined daytime “reality.” And vice-versa. Which is the dream?? I’m exploring dreams of all sorts. Come explore with me…

I hope your Dad is okay Lynn and that you get some sleep.
I finally got some sleep last night! I’m going fishing tomorrow!
I’m just learning about zucchini pollination. Apparently, I have to get rid of some males so that the females grow in. Is that like real life? I dunno.
Hope your dad is alright.
Keep us posted.. 😦
Ha. That may be the problem. Tons of flowers. I have pollinated cucumbers myself without the best of luck. I guess you can get a type that doesn’t require that. But not sure I’ll bother with zucchini if this is going to be a problem with them, too. 🙂
That’s always the deal — males causing problems. Ha. We got big rain this morning, so I don’t have to water, but will take a peek at things here shortly.
I read if they are not pollinated- find the male- take pollen with a brush and pollinate the female flower. Sounds almost kinky but that’s what I read. lol. I think I’m going to have to do that with my cantaloupes. Lots of blooms but no fruit.
Just like with birds and humans( men get the thick eyelashes) the male plant is more colorful. Cheers
Yeah I did this with cucumbers once with limited success. Kind of a pain. 🙂
