garden envy

I miss the luxury of growing my own.

vegetable garden

I grow, but not during the winter, I don’t have the necessary space. I grow from spring to fall and miss it this time of year. I miss it so much. Especially as it’s been looking like this (below) lately…

I miss having food growing and available, in my backyard. I miss being self-sufficient (at least in terms of veggies). I miss the luxury of walking outside (despite the mosquito issue around here), snipping away (usually quickly – the mosquitos), and then coming back inside with a basket full of fresh greens and then some…I do miss my backyard veggies..

Enough, melancholy – Februarys’ brighter light and longer days have reminded me – Spring is inevitable.

morning glories

even if it doesn’t seem so now…it will come.

Normally I would have started plantings already, but this year I’ve had to hold off – at least until we return from our long overdue trip! I am so excited to be going away (we haven’t taken a trip in over 5 years!!), though I do wish I could have started my plantings already – the season is short enough around here !! But starting trays and trays of seedlings made no sense. I didn’t want to ask anyone to look after them while we were away, that just felt like way too much to ask of anyone…so, the seeds will sit and wait a few more weeks…as will I…

enjoy!

  1. I know the feeling! The little seedlings bring the miracle of spring and regrowth to the counter top and later into the garden. I am waiting for spring too and I have a few packets of seeds collected as well! Have a wonderful trip!
