It's my 2nd blogaversary!!
Yesterday was my big day and I didn't even blog about it! I don't often blog on weekends and I was too caught up in my farmer's market rant to give myself two big cheers for my second blogaversary. I figure I'm often a day late and a dollar short in the garden, so being a day late for my blogaversary just makes sense.
Hard to believe I've kept this blog up for two years. Even harder to think that in those two years I've gone from a 468 square foot vegetable garden to 2 raised beds (and a 3rd one that I haven't blogged about yet, but it's not really the same - I'll explain later). I started with 2-year-old and 4-year-old boys and ended up with a 4 year old and a 6 year old. I had an old slow Lab and a spritely German Shepherd. I ended up with an insane puppy and a mature Shepherd with some distinguished grey hairs on his muzzle. And let's not forget that I started this blog chicken-free and now have three mature egg-laying thoroughly amusing hens.
It's been a great two years. I definitely learned more than I expected, but wish I had learned a lot more. Who knew that gardening (in the insane temperatures of Florida) had such a big learning curve? Not me! But I do now.
Thanks so much to all my readers for taking time out of your day to read my blog. Thanks to my long-time readers, my new readers, my dedicated readers, my occasional readers, my accidental readers and my secret readers on the sly who only come out of the woodwork when I post "Who ARE you people?" entries on the blog! Thanks to you all for your comments, advice and plain ole' words of encouragement. It's what keeps me going on the days when I want to bulldoze it all and learn to macramé instead.
