It is an inspiring thing to me that despite my severe lack of motivation and energy recently the veggies in my garden just kept on growing without any help from me.
It helped that we have had so much rain of late which supplemented my rather sporadic watering. This has also helped the weeds to grow, but that is fine. I rather like sitting in the soil and pulling weeds.
The past week I have been lucky enough to harvest several pounds of spinach and of course my much loved swiss chard, as well as carrots, beets, and parsley. My seedlings are thriving as well and are almost ready to plant out once I have prepared their new homes.
I am feeling a bit more like myself again and although still not quite back to where I was in terms of my energy levels I don't think it will be long now.
I had pretty much written February off as a dead loss in terms of getting things done but it appears that my vegetable garden had other plans! Nice.
