Well, for those of you who don’t know, I had my second radiation treatment today. It only takes 10 to 15 minutes for the treatment once they call you to the back. So far they have been right on time and the staff if very kind and helpful, answering all of my questions. As Robin mentioned in an earlier post, the three “crosses” are used to keep everything “in line” – how about that metaphor?!
The new pain regimen is okay, but we are going to probably have to ‘tinker’ with it in a few days if it does not get better.
The garden is going crazy! We get about 1 pound of green beans every 2nd or 3rd day – and that is with only about 75 feet of row producing right now. We have others coming in, so I don’t know if we are going to be able to eat, store and share it all! The peppers, eggplants and some of the cherry tomatoes are producing fruit which is ripe and ready and the corn is close (evidenced by the fact that the raccoons are sampling an ear here and there!) as well as the cucumbers and slicing tomatoes. The cantaloupes are about 1 inch and one of the 500 lbs pumpkins (there are several smaller ones on the vine) is about as big as a softball. That is it in the picture, along with my other two legged pumpkin!

This weekend needs to be more than just an excuse to ‘fire-up’ the pit. Let’s remember all of those who have paid the price for our rare freedom. . . .
