We didn't put out a garden this year because we had our roof replaced in June and I was afraid the guys would need to drive through the backyard; there was no point in planting anything if it was just going to get run over. But summer would be sad without some fresh green beans, so I decided to put a few plants in my flower bed. Since I got a late start, the seed packets were picked over by the time I went shopping. What I found was "asparagus" pole beans and I planted them next to the deck. They've started producing and we're on our second picking, so I'm going to call the experiment a success! Coupled with some volunteer tomatoes that came up, I've got all the garden I really want. This may be the way to go from now on!

So I did a thing...err, I mean, I wrote a thing. A short story that got included in this anthology, specifically. It was fun, both the writing and simply being involved. Sometimes writing feels like I'm pulling myself from paragraph to paragraph, but the idea for this anthology popped up on Twitter (in response to #cockygate) and I thought "what the hey, I'll give it a try". Ten minutes of character planning turned into three days of writing. I think it's going to be a limited release, but I'm just glad I decided to do it. I used to never try because I was afraid of failing. I'm getting braver in my old age!
