In my 20s when I wanted to lose weight I could increase my activity, cut a few desserts and the weight would just fall off. Now that I am a mom in my mid-30s with a slowing metabolism and crazy busy lifestyle, I actually have to use the tips I have been giving others for years (that I know work!!!)
The more I think, the more I realize that just like the sunflowers, tomato bush and peppers, we have grown despite the weeds.
Ever since I started gardening I have heard and lived slightly in fear of my fruits and vegetables going to seed. I swear everyone talks about it!
Again I am reminded just how many life lessons gardening can teach us. Just like the tomato plants it is important to cut away damaging acquaintances, friends or even activities so that we can reach our true potential.
The green beans in my garden are sketchy, ninja vegetables… Green beans grow on a bush or a vine – I have both types in my garden. Today we are discussing the bush green beans. They are the ones you should really look out for..
Literally every day I am astounded by how different the garden looks and how much things have grown literally over night. Like a baby goldfish (or just a baby – the analogy has gotten away from me) I have been tracking the progress of the garden each week and documenting it via pictures. Again I am THAT mom (gardener?)…
The eggplants in my garden have been a source of “gardening stress” for me since we moved into our new house. When we moved in the previous owner proudly showed me the flowing eggplant plants while proclaiming, “you will have fresh eggplants any day now!” So I excitedly waited for the eggplants to appear… I waited and waited and waited.
