On 01.02.02, I was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer. Too late for surgery, I had chemotherapy, which failed. In May the chemotherapy was changed and I was soon in remission which was celebrated and welcome and lasted nine years - until October 2011. There was progression in 2011 so more treatment was indicated and I am now back in partial remission. But I'm not only a cancer patient - I also enjoy my family, walk my dogs and am learning to draw and paint. Life is good!

Growing like Topsy

My tomato plants - Early Girl - have taken off like nobody's business.  They are over three feet tall and have almost 30 growing fruit.  Mind you, this is a mini plot, just four feet square with a few marigolds mixed in (to keep away the nematodes) and sunflowers standing guard.  I'm amazed by what can happen in limited space.


  1. Congratulations on your garden, and enjoy the tomatoes as they ripen!

  2. Thanks, Rebecca. I don't have the greenest thumb, but I'm working on it!
