We've now harvested over 500 tomatoes for the month (568) and have also harvested over 4000 front yard tomatoes for the year (4010)!

Earlier in the week (I don't remember the day) I dug out the passive compost pile. I moved it to another area, then moved it back into the wire cage in the same location. The whole process took about three hours. The size of the pile clearly dropped and continued to drop over the last couple of days. I found a couple of spoons in the pile (oops!) and a large squash that didn't degrade whatsoever. I cut it into three pieces with the shovel.

My wife watered the back yard tomato plants.

I turned some dirt in the back yard and my wife planted some winter crops in this turned area near our south fence.

I'm still having some computer troubles but I haven't noticed it today, thus this catch-up update.

Computer Problems

Due to my computer troubles over the last week, my updates will be spotty to non-existent until they're solved.

Thanks for your understanding!
