Thanks for cheering on my garden in my latest blog! I only wish I could share all the produce with you... I mean, who in their right mind plants 24 heritage tomato plants and 32 hot pepper plants?? It looks like we'll be booking "Salsa-Fest" for this fall. I see a lot of canning in our future...
I can totally relate to being shy to go out. I too had a similar issue when I was over 200 pounds. Now that I have lost 45 pounds and 1 size away from my goal size. I feel so much better and am able to face the world a bit more easily.
