The garden has died.
The bugs started attacking again. And I knew from last year I would have a major battle on my hands to recover. Time consuming and expensive.
And really, I just don’t have the energy or time to do much more than water right now. And the zucchini were about the only things actually getting eaten in a reasonable time frame, due to the same lack of time and energy when it comes to cooking right now.
So it was a logical decision. And it was a decision not to fight the battle rather than a loss of the battle. It was on my terms, not by my losing in spite of my best efforts.
But still sad.
