July was gloomy I was not happy. August is turning out much better. Its gotten hot. My tomatoes are doing great. There is a aphid problem with some of my plants but nothing is dead yet. At long last a beach day was had and it was good.
These days I have the tyranny of the produce. I am growing more than I can realistically eat. The other day I harvested some greens from the garden only to find more of a similar green sitting in one of my planter boxes. Damn one more thing to eat. There has been some concern for my mental health as I found my self willingly eating kale. This out of normal behavior has since been rationalized as a reflection on my desire not to buy leafy greens as long as my garden can produce them for me.
Work is also going well. You have to enjoy a job where an afternoon can be spent learning how to make your job easier. Its not easy being inside with the bright sun and I have to admit that as long as I have my projects under control I am leaving the office quickly. To be fair if when there is a bigger work load I stay in a little longer but high summer and a slow work flow will drive me outside.
