Ready for the good news now? By around 7:00pm, symptoms are almost gone and I think I beat this thing! I’m amazed because I have a notoriously pathetic immune system – usually one of these annoying little colds would hang around for a whole week! I followed Dr. Juli’s advice today and got plenty of vitamin C: 2 mugs of hot lemon water, an Odwalla Strawberry C Monster (with the addition of an Echinacea supplement), an Odwalla Mango Tango (What? Haven’t you seen the big pack of mini Odwallas at Costco?) and an orange. Now I don’t want to jump to any wild conclusions, but could it be that a whole month of no sugar and all-around healthiness is the cause of my miraculous recovery? Could it really have made that much of a difference? What do you think?
Ok, on to bad news #2: Those stupid snails destroyed nearly all of my winter garden. No matter how hard I fought, they found there way into the Tuscan kale, Swiss chard and Brussels sprouts. (I prefer geographically specific greens. ;) As for the potato plant….well, it just died. I think the freezing weather might be the culprit.
But, the good news is I still got a potato crop! Here it is….(and yes, unfortunately that’s all of them.)
