Vegetable Garden & Berry Rows (66)

For two and a half seasons, the solo work on the vegetable garden consisted of 6 days per week, mostly during the hours of sun-rise to sun-set.

By harvest 2016 I’d grown weary of toiling here, only to find that at the end, others had benefitted handsomely and I, well, a perfect summary of the results was when I went to the garden for some ears of corn to provide a good dinner to a neighbour to find that all but 6 poor ears were left after others had previously pillaged.
