I have such good intentions about my blogs (I have several). And yet I never get a round tuit (around to it)! I’ve been this way most of my life. I’m FINALLY beginning to get a few things done as scheduled, but not many.

My poor husband, the Ol’ Curmudgeon, is pleased with the few. He has generally gently encouraged me and supported me and helped me accomplish larger tasks. Occasionally, though, things are totally out of control and he gives me an ultimatum or two. And most of the time that works, but if he walked around giving ultimatums all the time, I don’t think it would help at all – in fact, it probably would squelch my efforts altogether.

Procrastination is one of the things I confess. God forgives me, He knows my heart. But the people around me really do get exasperated with me.

The exhaustion and fatigue and pain AND brain fog of Rheumatoid Disease and Fibromyalgia don’t help. I’m not using those as excuses but as the reality of my life. I can do a lot some days. Other times I’m chair bound for 2-3 days at a time. Frustrating.

Today is chair-bound day, so here I am trying to make up for lost time on the computer.

Forgive us our debts…

Our AeroGarden

2018 – January

Himself and I have had no luck with gardening in the past. I also have no luck keeping nice plants given me by others in good shape. I forget to water them, and we keep our house pretty dark most of the time. Well, too dark for houseplants, anyway!

So, Himself really surprised me in late January by ordering an AeroGarden (by Miracle Gro) Bounty Elite. (http://www.aerogarden.com/). Only  6 days after setting it up, we had little seedlings sprouting! We were both stunned, and excited, and finally feeling a bit optimistic about growing some edibles! Of course, it will take a LOT of edibles to start balancing the cost of the AeroGarden, but just gotta calculate in the FUN of the whole thing!

We are growing 2 mini cherry tomatoes, basil, dill, Italian parsley, curley parsley, thyme, mint and chives.

2018 – February

We were having so much fun and wanted to have more than the 9 spaces available in the Elite garden, so we got another one (Harvest) with 6 spaces just for lettuce (Parris Island, Black Seeded Simpson, Deer Tongue, Marvel of the 4 Seasons, Red Sails and Rouge d’Hiver). All are mildly flavored leaf lettuces, some have red leaves among their green leaves – makes for a very colorful salad. Looking forward to the time, in about 3 months, when we can have a lettuce, tomato and basil salad with chives. Also looking forward to when we have enough basil to make pesto. YUM!
