Glad you've found gardening SP. Congrats on your lettuce!

I love my vegetables...small patch tho. Lettuce, beans, tomatoes, strawberries, rosemary, mint, thyme and for the first time some really lush parsley...the tight curly kind.

My Mum who was a wise old thing said.."Gardening is really therapy. You are always thinking of the future..I'll put XX here next year. Maybe I'll plant XX here, and wow, XX will be ready to eat in a week.....So you have no time to look backwards and brood on troubles."

As she said, she was "careless" and "lost two husbands", so she could have brooded on lots of troubles. But as a widowed mum, she was calm, cheerful and funny. Gardening, which she found late in her life, brought her a lot of joy.
