I'm going to post this on my status, but will share it here:
I just want to say: If that saying--sweat is fat cells crying, then my fat cells cried big buckets today. Over 6 hours working in the yard and garden, carrying cut branches, moving rocks, planting more in the garden and finally putting up fences around the 2 garden beds in hopes of keeping the varmints out this year.

I have a little herb garden in a container on my front porch and love it. Planting flowers this year, though. Hope it's not too late!!

I've got some tomatoes, basil, cilantro, rosemary, sage, oregano, mint, broccoli, peas, kale planted. I have cucumbers and squash to plant and still have to get my peppers. I'll be planting beans yet.

Would love to do this, if my Fibro would let me...

Had a vegetable garden at one of my client's (private caregiver) that was awesome! My DFIL gave me three heirloom tomato plants for his contribution, and they were ever bearing. We had enough tomatoes to feed an army - tomato jam, tomato relish, etc., made by my relief gal. emoticon

Why not try your hand at growing your very own vegetables this week? It could be an ambitious ‘section of your yard’ type project, or a few simple containers on your patio. If you’ve always wanted to do this, here’s your chance!

1) What do you want to grow? What’cha going to plant? Choose vegetables that you and your family like to eat, and that may be harder to find in a grocery store or farmer’s markets.

2) Don’t go overboard If you’ve never done a vegetable garden before, choose just one or two veggies to start. In fact, try your hand first at container gardening, before you begin ripping up your yard. Make sure it’s something you enjoy doing.

3) Go to your local garden center Check with a local gardening center to see if any nutrients need to be added to your soil, like compost, to make it more fertile for your plants. Get your starter plants and other items there.

4) Plant and label Do some planting, being sure you label each with a garden marker. If you have kids, this is a great part of the gardening process to get them interested and involved in.

5) Schedule time to maintain it Gardens need love and tender care. This includes watering if you don’t receive enough rain, weeding, picking the veggies, and cleaning it up at the end of the season. Enjoy www.getorganizednow.com/organizing-c
