my garden in may
...and we've got to get ourselves back to the garden. --Joni Mitchell I'm in garden mode right now. This is my first vegetable garden & I'm so dang proud of it.
(It goes without saying that its "organic." Isn't that the only way to grow a food garden?) I had a lot of help to get it going --my wonderful husband tilled the whole thing ( I tried & couldn't do it --it's hard work!) & my awesome brother built the raised boxes. From there it's been my baby & I'm out there every day. I highly recommend everyone have some kind of food garden for therapy -even if it's just some herbs or tomatoes in a container --something to get your hands in the dirt, to check on lovingly everyday or so to see its progress & feel so proud when you put something on your table that you grew yourself. I'm hooked now.
