Last weekend I was able to get my gardens started and decided to dedicate two of my beds to the assignment of Bell Peppers and Heirloom Tomato’s. I divided eat 4×4 raised bed garden with string to make sure that each plant is perfectly centered. This probably doesn’t mean much now but come August when these plants are in full growth I will be thankful that I made this decision. I actually put the tomato cages in place before I planted to make sure they are seated properly and will later wire tie each one together and anchor the corners. Tomato plants can get very heavy and I remember all of the problems I had last year with just the on plant I had in the front of the house. I also planted yellow marigolds to not only add colors to the garden, but also act as a deterrent to unwanted insects. There are other plants that do the same thing and I will write about them as I plant. This weekend will bring in two more heirloom tomato’s to complete the tomato bed and green beans to start another bed.
In the very nature of simple living or living an intentional life there are those things that bring us great joy. I don’t spend money on stuff that clutters my home and choose to spend on those things that bring me joy. For me gardening is one of those area’s that I find joyful and provides my soul with the comfort of working with the natural world.
I am feeling much better today and noticing that my blood glucose is a little lower today it is an indication to me that my immune system is winning the battle over that nasty little bug in my gut. Still I will give myself one more day of rest to allow for the the healing process to complete it’s task.
