No photo to post, haven't been to the garden in weeks. Jacob can't keep up as we had too much started when my cancer hit for just one person. But he says he is ready to harvest some bell peppers and eggplant. And watermelons are doing great. Might be all we have to show if we have Pumpkinfest.

I am wrapping up the treatment. One more radiation today, 5 next week and 3 the following. The chemo I had last week knocked me for a loop. I am better today, but the chemo I got yesterday is due to hit me tomorrow. Just one more chemo next week and it is done. Then it will be a couple weeks of resting up, more tests to see just how much the radiation and chemo knocked back the cancer. Then I go with my test result to Mayo clinic to see how the surgeons want to proceed in removing the rest of the cancer. I still have 2 or 3 rough months ahead of me, but I am determined to beat this and be back with some serious growing next year. I will just be cutting some and concentrating on a smaller garden.
