            There's a new disorder on the market, I doubt you've heard of it but am pretty sure you've had it at least once, gardenopause! You know the time between the main planting, mulching and harvest when all you really have left to do is the weeding but crave more! Yep, I have it!
    Having a odd ball weather year only adds to the symptoms, but thanks to Walmart for marking down all their plants already so I can dig and dream all in one hole, and for my basil that keeps me sane, pesto this, pesto that, while I wait for the Texas zucchini to ripen so I may fill my freezer with all kinds of zucchini breads!
     No known cure yet, thankfully, and the only prescription needed is patience.  Patience while the garden produces, then it's canning season,  freezing and eating our way through the best little disorder ever discovered!!
     This sure beats menopause but the hot flashes in the garden will deliver the same out come, because I'm pretty sure this disorder has stricken more women than men, it's probably hormonal!
