Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

You know, I had about 6 tomato plants and I know I had ripe tomatoes because I saw them from my window... guess how many tomatoes I actually harvested and ate?Huh  ONE - ONE LONE CHERRY TOMATO!!!!  Either *THAT DOG* is eating them behind our backs, or the danged bushy tailed rodents that live in the maple tree squirrel condo just on the other side of fence are getting them!

We didn't dig up the potatoes & now it's a mess of snow outside, oops. The fellas are out there today, only the first inch or so of soil is frozen and they say the box is full of spuds!
After clearing all the leaves last week another small but perfect broccoli was found. I put it into a quiche, delicious!



ETA the potatoes, including some tiny yams.

I dug carrots with the top 1-2 inches frozen. They looked so silly sticking out of the collar of frozen dirt. But so delicious. Yay on your spuds. They look so yummy.

This year we got started late again. By the time I got to them the back boxes were completely overrun with weeds. Clearing them out I found lots of tomato babies that had sprouted up on their own, they were trying to make a go of it in the shadow of those giant weeds so they were pretty small. Once we cleared out the boxes I transplanted them at the end of June, there were enough to fill the whole garden and only a couple of them failed to thrive. We went away for 2 weeks and a neighbour watered them once during that time (it rained lots, this has been a wet year). When we got back they had gone from this:



To this in just over 2 weeks, OMG!
