Since I fell on my butt taking pictures nearly two weeks ago I’ve discovered life with a sprained foot isn’t easy. I have a list of chores a mile long and I can’t do most of them. But, thanks to Mr. Comfortable and Pete life with a sprained foot isn’t all bad!
Life with a sprained foot
As part of my Goals and Challenges for 2017 I wanted to get the flower beds back into shape. Sadly a lot of the perennials I had planted were mistakenly uprooted when Mr. Comfortable “weeded” for me a couple of years ago. Other plants just came to the end of their lives.

Restoring My Neglected Flower Beds
I admit, in most ways, I’m not a fan of worms. When we go fishing I still prefer my son baits my hook. And if I see a worm on the surface of a street I get the shudders.

Get Ready for Garden Season!
I originally posted this last March and it’s amazing how accurate it is today! Just like in March, we’ve had two snowstorms very close together. And I’m still not able to escape winter with a quick trip to the Bahamas so I’m back to dreaming about summer and doing what I can to be ready when garden season comes around again.
Garden Things to do in Winter
I originally posted this about 5 months ago but my son and I dug up some of my herbs from the garden yesterday. I’ll keep them in pots over the winter so I’ll have fresh herbs all winter. In the spring they’ll go back to the garden. I thought you might want to make flavor inspired container herb gardens, too.
