Dug the sweet potatoes today and putting them in baskets about did my back in. I got 8 baskets of red,and yellow sweet potatoes. The red ones where really big and they are so sweet when baked. Yellow for 2 years now haven't done well and I think I need a new plant. This strand has been in the family for 30 or more years. My secret of success is that I can still push myself with my bad back and get things done. I love Spark peoples site. Smile

I keep track of my time when I am working in the garden or doing heavy cleaning to help with my cardio minutes/calories burned for the week. It's made me realize how much more active I've become since joining SP. 30
I have started a herb garden in addition to my veggie garden[with flowers outlining it!] and since my hubby mulched the herb garden for me, those weeds are being stifled and much LESS showing UP! So, it's off to the garden supply store to get mulch for the rest of the veggie garden now! Am planning to show photos in my gallery of the gardens as they progress!The mulching also SAVES WATER as it helps to keep the ground moist so LESS WATER is needed!
Today I planted myself a vision garden. I thought of the garden as a metaphor of sorts for my own journey of renewal. My garden symbolizes a fresh beautiful start in life... so, when I go out to tend my garden it serves as a reminder that I, much like my garden, can only flourish when tended to. 87
