Day 60, 61

I am updating for yesterday today because I went to bed almost as soon as I got home yesterday and slept for 12 hours straight. I hadn't slept the night before. I just couldn't settle my mind down. When I woke up it was slasher week.

Yesterday was grocery day so I was out and moving all day which did not give me the break I needed. I am taking that today. I feel light headed and achy. I don't think I'm sick, I think I'm just exhausted. I am definitely tired.

Tonight or tomorrow morning depending on how I feel I am going to start my seeds for the container garden I am planning. I think it will be good for me to get outside more this year, not to mention that growing your own veggies is rewarding all by itself. I am growing lots of herbs, including cat nip (I couldn't not). I am growing 2 different kinds of tomatoes, bell peppers and habanero peppers, carrots, zucchini, and potatoes (in old trash cans!). I am also planning to grow strawberries and if I have the room and money for more containers and supplies I will add more veggies too.

The only flower I am growing so far is from a pack of seeds a friend. Forget-me-not seeds. In the color blue. I am going to transfer them to a pot and sit them over Blue out back.

Wish my garden luck, I haven't ever done this before. I am hoping that one of the benefits here will be the beginning of a healthier relationship with food.

I will see you guys tomorrow!

Okay, the blue forget-me-nots over Blues resting place made me cry!

I hope you enjoy your gardening. We love our homegrown tomatoes, strawberries, blueberries and zucchini and green beans. We don't use chemicals, and they all taste wonderful!!
