Garden update

I am feeling a little down today. While at the garden this morning I discovered that someone had jumped the fence and stolen all my large green tomatoes, they were no way near ripening. All of them were taken off the plants. What would someone want with green tomatoes? On top of this, they had stepped on my heirloom Brandwine plant and nearly ripped it in half! There has been more than a few instances of theft at this garden area. It is becoming a real problem and one that all of us are attempting to deal with. I've not had a lot of luck with the few vegetables I am growing, but my flowers are beautiful! I need to get some new pictures to share soon.

I'm so sorry Lee. You've been loving this garden all summer and to have someone rob you of the fruits of your efforts must be really disheartening.

Oh Lee...I'm soooo sorry to hear about that! What a shame that the world has people like that in it.
I hope you can still fix your garden back to normal. Your flowers are sooo pretty. Hang in there and keep your eyes looking up.

Big Hugs!

So sorry to hear about the garden! So sad that others just can't respect what others are trying to do!
