Winter Garden

For as much enthusiasm as I had about winter gardens, this one has been disappointing.

My expectation was for crispy, sweet lettuce all season long. The romaine, however, has become bitter and me with it (or vice versa).

The compost is still cooking and I haven't seen the ants. My brother says they've gone underground. I'm hoping to get down there to chill them out before the cold weather leaves.

Did I tell you I got the report back from the Department of Agriculture? Southern Fire Ants!

Our lemons are spectacular, though. Nothing is all bad. (Maybe if I could do away with judgment alltogether...)
