What Happens To You & Your Garden When You Move?

What Happens To You & Your Garden When You Move?

Since relocating to a new area, my ability to plant my food garden has changed drastically.

I did not realize that the mental health aspects of gardening would have such a detrimental impact on my ability to feel motivated, happy and ready to tackle life.  Gardening is truly my therapy.  I am a nature person by nature and when I begin gardening 6 years ago, I felt like this was what I had been missing.

Living in an apartment has surely presented me with a gardening challenge.  Being the type of person that I am, I seem to think that "you can do anything if you put your mind to it"!  

Well, oops...this is embarassing...then why haven't I risen to the challenge yet?  I have a sunroom, pots and seed to do it!   What is it about the land, being in the sunlight, and taking in the great outdoors.  Ahh, just thinking about it makes me smile!

  1. Greetings Dear Sister. I know how you feel. I experienced a mental set back in my gardening that I still have not quite overcome yet. Though I did not move and am still on the same land, after two years I am just getting the motivation to start up again. I know it is difficult to get started again, but know that you have been one of those who inspired me not to give up. Insha'Allah I will send you news of our progress as we get going. Maybe it will inspire you as well....may Allah Bless you!
