If you’ve never experienced the joy of accomplishing more than you can imagine, plant a garden. ~Robert Brault
I saw my Therapist today. Her challenge and my goal is to stay in the here and now. Notice the things around me, using all of my senses. Acknowledge then dismiss “her” when she tries to envade my thoughts and actions.
This is why tonight I choose to blog on my garden. I am so excited about my little bell peppers. They will be the purple variety when ripe. I never thought I would be able to grow anything, and though they are not mature yet they are on their way. My husband and I tag team watering them.
I also have an eggplant plant. Is that what it is called or is it just called eggplant without the second plant? Either way, it looks like it is getting ready to bloom. Keeping my fingers crossed for it. I have read they are heavy feeders, and I feed it Miracle Grow several times a week. Man does Miracle Grow stink. Yuck!
I had planted burpless cucumbers too but poor fellas drowned last week when I was away and we had alot of rain. The easiest plant according to all the websites was the one that died, I find that comical somehow. I was looking forward to marinated cucumbers though.
So that is all I have planted. I know that it is barely considered a garden, but I wanted to test the waters first to see if my thumb was really black. I am grateful it it partially green atleast.
If you have any good bell pepper recipes or egg plant recipes, please feel free to comment. I would love to hear them.
