Resuming Gardening, Slowly but Surely

I had to give up gardening and really, almost all outside work, because of my disabilities. But with the improvement in my health, I’m starting, in a small way, to get back to one of my loves.

Here you see my a raised bed with two vegetables in it, and in the background, you just might glimpse some of the incidental flowers as well as survivors from when I had an herb garden (chives, comfrey, lemon balm, chocolate mint).

 

 

 

I also used an old, useless wheelbarrow to try growing a small herb garden. In first photo, you see last year’s thyme, which survived the winter, and the basil which reseeded itself.
The parsley I just planted and petunias as well, because I have some extra and thought they’d be a nice touch.

 

 

In the second photo, you can see how they’re thriving a few weeks later.

 

 

I think it’s easy to see where my one character Tam (in Sword’s Edge and Children of the Enaisi) gets her love of gardening.
