Volunteering for a seedy operation

Tomato plant pictures: the volunteer that’s a month old and a view of its new buds. Hoping to get Ellen in her much colder climate some quick-grows for next year from this thing.

And then there’s the heirloom variety still going after six months.

Meantime, yup, tried the cranberry juice, tried the vitamin C, but still woke up with a trip straight to the doctor. Thankfully there are still some antibiotics that have not yet been made useless by the unethical feedlot practices of the big bioag producers, and so I am no longer passing blood.

Never mind all that–I was just sick enough to put my feet up and get some serious knitting time in and I’m delighted at how much I got done.  The 45×60″ I want while using size 4s is a very long slog but I can actually tell the difference from yesterday. (Pass the icepacks.)

All our tomatoes are long gone, even the ones that we hung in the basement to ripen. I am only slightly jealous of yours. Get all better in a hurry.

Yes, like Sherry says “in a hurry.” At least you got some knitting done.

Sorry you weren’t feeling well but very happy indeed that you received prompt and helpful help.

Knitting progress is always grand.

I know that urgent feeling to get to the urgent care. Pun intended, because if you aren’t laughing, you’d be crying!
