I find it extremely therapeutic and being out of the 9-5 work world for so long, with gardening I feel that I am always learning. I can readily identify plants on the side of the road now, I consider that a huge accomplishment!
I got started early this year....REALLY early, hence the really happy lettuce.
In the garden this year:
spinach, lettuce, kale, bok choy, carrots, pumpkins, corn, squash, cucumbers, rhubarb, tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, chamomile, cilantro and a random milk thistle. We also have 3 apple trees,2 peach trees, 1 plum tree, raspberries and strawberries, blueberries and some annoying unproductive grapes.
This is the new corn/squash bed.
