Some of you may recall, that I mentioned that I had been diagnosed with Alzheimers, which has slowly started me down the road of a long journey, but still with laugh or two on the. As you may know, one of the first symptoms is memory loss, not that mine was very good in the first place.
Due to the forgoing, last year gardening was getting a little more difficult as the year progressed starting with seeding out one raised bed with lettuce, sticking in a nice big label at the end of the bed, only preparing the same bed for carrots by starting at the other end; Great beginning, still it taught me something BIG notes every where to remind me, great Idea worked like a charm for awhile with the help of my granddaughter.
As the year progressed so did the comedy of errors, little things like checking the moisture of veg plots, and by passing the automatic timer on the watering system, and finding the following morning, the onions, carrots, and other unidentified species floating around the raised beds.
The chickens and the local population of rabbits, soon learnt it was well worth checking to see if the gate to veg garden had been left open, until son in law put on a big spring which closed the gate and also gave me a kick in arse if I forgot get in quick.
I will not be giving up my gardens, as I need them more now than at any-time before, disaster or not they are for me my life-line, and for you that have no other options and who who are not in my fortunate position, I and can only sympathise with you and wish you well.
I can't do great things, so I do little things with love.
