Ever feel that way? My second complaint in 5 weeks of delivering garden produce. I guess maybe that if I look at the odds then I'm doing ok but it still kinda gets to me. The learning curve that planning, planting and delivering a CSA entails is mind boggling. 25 weeks of an abundance and variety of produce to fill a basket each and every week. Who knew I was capable of such a task. Oh wait, I guess I'm not quite meeting the expectations since I've now had two complaints about the size of my baskets. Well let the learning curve continue I guess, 20 weeks to go which leaves tons of room for more work and lots of progress. Yet I'm 5 weeks into it and I was pretty proud of myself yesterday. I mean sure with the way the spring went the baskets are a bit on the small side but things are picking up speed. Next year I'm definitely charing more for the season. I work way too hard and get paid way too little to listen to complaints about how I must not be working hard enough. Boy. As if. The problem with not knowing is ya just don't know. (logic for ya)

I'm kinda in a slump I guess. Being disappointed over that dude doesn't help nothing either. Another one bites the dust! Anyways. I need a vacation. Or a really nice date. Ha ha. I think I have a better chance at getting a weeks vacation than a decent date. I guess what I need to do is work harder and meet my customers expectations. :) (there was only a little bit of sarcasm in there) I swear sometimes looking back at my life is more humorous then watching a sitcom.

Did I tell you someone hacked into my gmail account and sent out spam? Or tried to. I guess the program recognized the attempt at spam and just shut down my email and account. Obviously I was able to get it back since I'm here but I lost my website and have yet to figure out how to get it back online. I was able to look at my log in history for gmail and discovered that the hacker is from Quebec, it gives me the dumbass's IP number, town it's located in and everything. Some people have way too much time on their hands.

It's spose to get up close to 90's today. Today is my official 'work in the garden' day. I think I'm going to find a bikini top and work in the garden in style. Get rid of some of these tan lines. What a thought. I don't think I'd have the nerve but it's funny to think about. I have more to plant, tons to weed and even more to water today.

After a weekend of no house chores I'm having a hard time getting back on track. (I don't know why I admit to that)


  1. Sorry to hear about the hacker, I sure wish I knew why they think that is fun sheesh. Good luck int he garden.

  2. dont worry about customer complaints, some people just love to complain even when there is nothing to complain about. You work very hard and I take my hat off to you. You are a single mom trying to raise her children and save the earth too.
    Other single moms out there sit on there bottoms and expect the rest of us to look after them. Be kind to yourself your doing a great job.
