Hello, peoples.

merricat(Zone 3a Canada)February 16, 2007

It's been a while; thought I'd drop in and say hello.

No gardening for me this year (except maintenance of course). I may plant heirloom tomatoes so I can get a good supply of seeds to give/trade, but that's the extent of it. Too much is going on right now: out of work, house has structural damage, and many other things are just......ungood.

These things go in cycles. Good-bad-better, it's never permanent. At least I'm thinking ahead this year and not swamping myself with extra garden-work I'll just stress over. Maybe next year.

Anyway, I'd love to hear from you all, hear what's going on with you and how you're getting ready for spring.

Hi merricat
I just found and read your post. I'm so sorry that this year is not going well for you and hope it picks up soon. Being out of work is frightening, isn't it?
And house structural damage sounds expensive and unpleasant.
Still, I hope you don't give up gardening.
I always find that gardening is such stress relief- I just can't envision doing without it. Even though my occupation is in horticulture, real garden time continues to be my joy and therapy.
If anything, why not just strew a few packages of easy annuals in your beds- cosmos, poppies, larkspur, etc.
Perhaps that way you can get some colour, something new to look at, and gardens you don't have to worry about.
The weeds will wait for you.
