This past week, I have been busy as gardening season begins. Thank you for your patience, as I have been working out some snafus recently. I have started my first round of seeds: vegetables (Roma and Beefsteak tomatoes, snap peas, etc.), herbs (basil, peppermint, etc.) and flowers (delphinium – it’s my 2nd attempt to grow this, my tulips have died for the summer, daffodils, etc.). I just transferred my first seeds (that have rooted) to pots this week & I plan to move more seeds to pots today. I saw my first onion leaves this week and I’m going to be keeping an eye on them as they grow. I will start my second round of seeds this week – this will allow me to keep the best and compost the rest.
I will also have another round of pulling dandelions. I like digging them up by hand – it’s the easiest way to remove as much of the roots as possible before adding more grass seed on top of where they were pulled up. Plus, it makes my yard looks great! I love the look of a nice, thick, green, (mostly) weed-free lawn…
I had been reading multiple books at a time, but have decided to switch methods and focus on one at a time. I read an article that stated it was possible to read over 100 books (with 250 pages each) per year if you read for 2 hrs/day, 5 days/wk. I was already doing that, only I’ve been reading multiple books. I just read one start to finish in two days – it had 318 pages. Reading is an excellent hobby for those of us facing traumatic brain injury… My next book is one from a giveaway that I won and then I will be switching to a gardening book.
“The Lord is my shepherd;
there is nothing I lack.
He lets me lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside quiet waters.
He renews my life;
He leads me along the right paths
for His name’s sake.
Even when I go through the darkest valley,
I fear no danger,
for You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff—they comfort me.”
– Psalm 23:1-4 (HCSB)
