My garden grows well this season. I talked years ago about how good it is for me. I haven’t had a garden since 2015, due to one circumstance after another, but having one gives me a place to be alone and listen to music, time with Hawken the Irish Wolfhound (just on the other side of the fence), and an activity that is outdoors, healthy, and productive.
I can’t say enough good things about working outside, even if it’s just for a few minutes. I have a little slogan in my head: something every day. So if I don’t really have time to pull of all the weeds, I’ll at least pull up one weed.
I also continue to walk the Wolfhound every day, which has been good for both of us, and for my health and the health of my lower back.
