I was going through my pictures and I thought I would show you my first attempt at
gardening, taking pictures and blogging. I didn't start my blog until July of 2008 so I don't
have any pictures of June. This was a huge undertaking for me because not only the size
of the garden but also taking pictures and then writing a post to go with it. I was sick
at my stomach every morning knowing I was going to be taking pictures and writing something to go with it. Also because my Mom was sick and I wanted her to
have something to look at every day, I kept at it. Having a garden that you know your
Mom is going to be looking at first thing in the morning is the same thing I do with my house. When my
Mom was going to come to my house, you can bet that she could have got a ladder and checked the top of my fan blades and every
surface would be clean. So in my very first garden I worked hard and I really didn't have a clue what
I was doing.
This is our garden last year. I planted way too many tomatoes. This was a nice garden but looking back,
I didn't enjoy it very much. I was still grieving my Mom's death, life was really full of lots of challenges and
I was having some health problems that I couldn't seem to get well from. I am glad I have some pictures
of it looking pretty, I don't think I took many pictures of it because I had a weedy mess.
This is Yesterday. This garden is really spread out and I didn't plant but a few tomatoes and peppers. I have other things but not as many as I have in the past. It is spread out like it is so my husband can use the tractor
to plow between the rows so I don't get a mess like last year.
This garden is fun, I am not sick and I think I am in a better place than last year. I am finally well and I feel
like each day I am better than the day before. It is funny to look back and see how far I have come in three
I just wanted to say thank you to all of you whom I have shared my journey. For you that I have just met
and for all of you that I consider my friends. You have made me feel loved and you continue to make
my field of dreams not just a dream but a reality.
Thanks for coming along with me.
