Here in Vermont we have reached our last frost date.
I had been waiting, not so patiently to plant in my raised beds, with in the waiting time I was prepping as many of the beds as able.
Poor gardens have taken a massive hit of neglect over the last 6 yr when Life kept throwing me curve balls.
Yesterday I was able to move from sun up, to sun down.
2019 I was able to pick one task for the day and was happy to be able to do one and stay in a manageable level of pain. step count 1500 and often with crazy pain
Summer 2020 I utilized that ability and put in raised beds. LOL 140sf. I could get lost in the garden playing for hours. Step goal was 3500 sometimes reaching 5,000
This year, living keto, eliminating inflammation from food sources, dropped over 40lb I am living the life I had been wishing for for many years. step often reaching into the 15,000 to 18,000
When I woke this am, I feel tender, yet, I am giddy thinking over the list I accomplished yesterday and Friday.. (did I mention I slept like a log)
I planted abundance of tomato 40ish, sweet peppers 50ish, carrots, beans, cucumbers, melons. weeded another section of a flower bed that hadn't been since 2014. I also up potted ton's more of tomato, ugggg I can't throw out seedlings, so I transplanted trays and trays that at this time I haven't a clue as to where there home will be.
(I will gift many to others that are still looking)
Prior to I am creating the habit of playing with my horse before getting lost playing in the gardens.. I did not play with her the last two days and she was calling from the fence lines as she watched me . ( I did try bringing her into the garden area to nibble on grass but she didn't eat the grass on only the lawn, as she filled up she would wonder and think the grass on the other side might be tastier and would step on perennial to try. uggggggg
I AM SO EXCITED to have built up endurance and strength. when I joined Sparks in Jan, that is what I put in my intro as a goal! ! ! CHECK for success! ! !
Pictures of gardens to follow, if not here then on facebook. I really am going to miss Sparks. I pretty much had ditched Facebook to get away from the drama and politic and haters, keyboard warrior. Sparks is the one place were it feel all positive and full of support and encouragement !
