|Nice tomato harvest. Not so nice phone-camera shadow...|
Uggghhh... Apparently, our automatic drip system timer died. Who knows how long ago. We tested it when we put the plants in, and a few times since, but we haven't really tried it much because it's been so loyally perfect. Since 2008. When we bought it. And now? It's silent. The timer can click (which means, open the gates, water should flow) but nothing happens. After a few minutes of trouble-shooting, I was hopeful that I'd missed something that E could find. But no. We came to the same conclusion. This unit had a good 7 years. And our garden has not been getting timed water for who knows how long - possibly 8 weeks. (But don't worry, we still deliver cherry tomatoes to folks when it is important.)

|One lunchtime harvest this week. No complaints.|
In my complacency, my weekly mileage was a horrid 15.66 on my feet, including much walking. For the folks who are wondering, yes, I do plan to do a 5K and a 10K in the fall. I've been fitting in some random decent tempos and intervals, but really, I suck. I did add 11 miles of biking and another couple of sets of calisthenics to the mix this week (including 20 minutes this AM -- 3X10 pushups, dips, abs, yoga, etc. -- it's gonna hurt tomorrow).
Essentially, I'm relaxed. Happy. About to go grab a new book and go to bed. Ready for whatever next week brings!
