This week has been my first week back in the garden in nearly three years. The summer before the coma, I was so busy trying to make enough work in preparation for being down post-surgery, I figured the garden was a luxury I could afford to postpone. Since then, it has been impossible for me to maintain. We had decided to dig up some of my favorite plants and pot them up, in hopes that in the future we could find better homes for them. Then we are planning to turn some of these perennial beds into lawn again. Really breaks my heart. So much work, so much time... and now I have to let some of it go. Reassess how much my body can manage.
