I'm tired of fruit flies.
I'm tired of every basket and enamelware bowl, bucket and pot being full of potatoes and onions and tomatoes in various stages of ripeness. Apples in various stages of rot. And summer squash.
I'm tired of my tables, Hoosier, countertop and every available flat surface from the side porch on through to the dining room being covered in baskets, buckets and pots.
I'm tired of fishing peas/tomato skins/bean ends out of the sink drain.
I'm REALLY tired of cleaning my countertop composter. That is one stage of composting that is really.... vile.
I'm tired of washing pots/pans/strainers/casserole dishes and cookie sheets. And the stove top.
I'm tired of rearranging my freezer.
I'm tired of cleaning the tomato seeds out of the Foley food mill.
I'm tired of trying to optimize the usage of every bag, box, and bushel basket I've hoarded.
And I'm tired of my refrigerator looking like a disaster zone and being on my feet until 10:00 three or four nights a week.
But I'll never get tired of beautiful, colorful vegetables...
