I think I have mentioned the crazy growth of the tomatoes before, but I ld like to investigate further.
The summer has progressed in an oddly traditional way , providing all the usual elements of summer in extremes. Too hot. Too dry. Too wet. Too eaten by deer.Ordinarily, I would ascribe the dificulty to to much nitrogen. I was so proud if all the manure I used, but I’m not so sure it isn’t the new climate itself. Earlier at the beginning of July a deer ate all he green toaoes. The plsnt was not disturbed at the time, but simply produced a new crop. The new crop has remained bright green, Next to the tomato are several squash and cucumber plants Before the deer they semed to struggle. Post deer they have deluged us with summer squash and zucchini. I would ry to make moe of it this morning, but I am equally distressed by my one column postg. I wonder if anyone minds that I am sharing all ths inadequacy. I would like so much to feel completely calm and competent in the face of these onslaughts of fate. More tomorrow when I am feeling less fractious.
