There are many reasons right now for me to celebrate... My gallbladder is out, and I am hungry again! Woo hoo! I am slowly recovering, and my husband has done a wonderful job of taking care of me. I couldn't have asked for a single thing that he didn't provide. I am ready to be 100%, and am trying to be patient with my recovery.
Also, I now have 10 followers! I think this demands a party. So, when are you all free? Hahaha, only joking, I know you all live across many state lines. Thanks, readers!! I honestly thought no one would follow my crazy, nerdy blog. Apparently, there are many other crazy, nerd-loving people out there! =)
Now, I haven't been able to get out into my garden, but I have a few more plants that have been hardening off this week on the deck. Next year, I know I need to start my seeds earlier. This year a trip interfered, and I knew they wouldn't get the water they needed. But, here is an update from some old pictures that I took before my surgery.
All of my other plants seem to be filling out nicely. I can't wait to get out there again, and see what they look like now! I know that I have mentioned that this garden is organic, and I am not using pesticides unless I absolutely have to. I have some natural repellents like marigolds, nasturtium, garlic, and other herbs. While I was working in the garden, I am happy to say a few insects gave a stamp of approval. Here is my first visitor that I was able to capture on camera!
