2011 in 66 Square Feet

A good year for strawberries, a lean year for figs. A good year for potatoes and tomatoes, even if the latter were cut short (by me) ahead of the promised destruction by Irene, who fizzled out. 2011 saw the introduction of Clematis 'Etoile Violette' to the terrace and a currant to the roof farm. Peas did not work in April but are still working in December. The parsley keeps on trucking, and next year I will not grow oregano. I may grow more basil. For those tomatoes.

We had snow in October and summer in pre-winter. A hurricane or two. There was a small earthquake. There were photographers. It has been interesting.

 I have put the terrace to bed (though I hear it may yet see some Christmas lights).

Thank you terrace, for a good year. For sun and rain, refuge and diversion, introductions and inspiration and, always, occupation. And the braais weren't bad, either.

See you next year.
