Sprite of the Wildwood

I think I have mentioned the crazy growth of the tomatoes before, but I ld like to investigate further.

Fiona rises over the grasping arms of a tomato vine.

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.

Well, I'm a bit on the elderly side , but I'm fighting the decline with my entry into the virtual world. I've been thinking for while that my situation is worth talking a, and for this reason. There is a tension between old and new. The old are intent upon keeping their authority and the young are intent on getting it for themselves. hereThis tension is as old as the Neanderthal and many of his four-legged cousins. And I want to explore that.
