I seem to have lost all motivation for things gardening.  I have two Aerogardens that have not been started up. I have not done any microgreens this winter.  I can't even think about planning this year's SFG.  My days seem to be consumed by my health situation ... medical appointments, diet considerations, exercise (walking plus strength and balance), reading books and research papers about the cancers, meeting with other survivors, attending support one and one and group meetings. Maybe I should just let the SFG lie fallow for this year.  Sad


PS: On days like today I feel I am going into a dark place. Depression-like symptoms are one of side effects of Androgen Deprivation Therapy. Add to that the anxiety connected with the diseases and it is not a good situation. I'll be OK once I get busy doing things.



"And the LORD will continually guide you, And satisfy your desire in scorched places, And give strength to your bones; And you will be like a watered garden, And like a spring of water whose waters do not fail." - Isaiah 58:11

yeppers Same here, TD, only for me it's Hubby's health, not mine that I'm worried about. I have seedlings in the plant room that should have been transplanted already, more seeds to start, and plants in the house that need tending, but I spend my days playing XBox, watching stupid movies, and reading fiction. Life isn't much fun right now. very sad

Get yourselves back out in the gardens  take your mind off your worries &  troubles . 

 I'm struggling to stand up and pull a brush full of leaves on the snow shovel then bag them ,  getting out in the cool damp weather is my reward . 

I can't do sod all about my health other than live with it so I consciously choose to enjoy every passing moment as I'll be a long time dead .

There's a great place to start. I'd love to have an Aerogarden. I love you

I'm gonna replant radish microgreens, today or tomorrow. We eat them right after our CoQ10, to get rid of the taste.

Can your Aerogardens grow flowers for Mrs. TD? I'd really like to see those puppies put through their paces before I turn loose any $$. (I'm not cheap -- I'm not, I'm not, I'm not!)

Yes, they can grow flowers but probably not very tall.

Can you start seedlings, then individually up-pot them?

Not easily using the regular Aerogardens pods. However, there is a special seedling starting tray available that allows seedlings to be transplanted.

Hmm, I think I'll stick with Jiffy Pellets and peat pots. Next winter, maybe I'll spring for something like this:
