Having a pity party

   I know it's been awhile since I posted but life got in the way and I have been having an awful case of empty nest syndrome and my 18 year old is still living with us (at least I think he is). My garden has mostly been put to bed for the winter except where the walking onions are planted and the cold frame still has lettuce and spinach growing in it so there isn't much to keep me busy outside. I let myself get pretty down about stuff that really doesn't matter. I felt like the kid that nobody wants on their kick-ball team. My hubs said it was because I have never done anything I wanted to do I was always doing what the kids wanted to do and he also said something about me having ADD and not being able to sit still for a even a minute but I blocked that out and I'm just going with the I'm sad because I don't have anyone to play with anymore (my kids have grown up and found new friends) Thanksgiving and Christmas came and it made me think about everything I should be thankful for and what a Debbie Downer I have been and I am getting back into the swing of things.
   On a better note I have been getting gardening catalogs in the mail everyday which is basically like porn to me so I have been busy drooling over all the different varieties of veggies, fruits, and flowers. It is getting close to start winter sowing some seeds if you haven't tried it you should because it is a pretty easy way to start seeds and and you don't have to buy any fancy lights or kick you husband out of his man cave because that is the only room with lots of south facing windows.  Here is a good site about winter sowing they will even send you free seeds.  

I had a small harvest of green onions, spinach and some herbs from the garden this morning!

I hope everyone has a great New Year!


  1. don't look back. what's on the docket for today? seeds! and the heirloom seeds catalogs are indeed porn.

  2. I would like to try a couple heirloom tomatoes but they need to be able to take our heat.
