Remember all that talk about keeping my garden simple this year? Hogwash. While I was in the depths of my first trimester, just when I should have been starting my seeds indoors, I had zero desire to be thinking about or planning my garden. But then somewhere in April around 20 weeks, when the haze and nausea lifted, I found myself planting seed after seed in the soil. I had renewed energy and desire to grow food for my family. The nurturing instinct for my family kicked in and I planted vegetable after vegetable, with the hopes of having enough of several varieties to last us all year.
I'm hoping that come harvest time, I really will have this new babe attached to me on the outside, as I think this will be a much easier state to maneuver around the garden. For now though, things are pretty much tending to themselves, with a little bit of help from Burl and I to keep them hydrated.
herb garden I planted has flourished like you wouldn't believe! I'm up to my ears in basil, chamomile, stevia, peppermint, parsley, and many more.
