grow something

April 17, 2011 separator Uncategorized

I have been super-stressed lately, what with finishing up my thesis (BUT IT’S DONE!!!) and getting ready to defend this coming Friday. Actually, on that note, send lots of happy, calm, successful thoughts my way, will you?! 

Anyway, when I get this stressed, few things effectively calm me enough to pass for sane. I have recently discovered that gardening is one of those amazing cures! I have planted tomatoes, lettuce, radishes, green onions, bell peppers, wildflowers, zinnias, and sunflowers. Everything but the wildflowers and sunflowers was planted in pots, for those of you who would argue being low on space. I’ve collected some great finds from Etsy to get  you started on your own little bit of zen!!!
