Gardening: Transition

Hi Everyone

I've shared before that I started my first garden.  I most say its is very addictive.  I enjoy going out back each morning to water and see what changes have happened.  I've been watching YouTube, reading and talking to my elders to learn.  Every new change just make me want to try new or different things.

I started my garden with mostly bags because they are economical, take up less room and work just as well as other containers.

This was the beginning and middle of my garden.  If you follow me on my other social media accounts (which you should lol) you've seen these pictures before.  I had great results with the bags. Learned which store bags work best and last the longest (Walmart) just my opinion.  However I always worried if the bag had enough soil and was holding moisture.  So, as I continued to learn I decided to transition to different containers. 
Still looking for the most economic and free is the most economic isn't it.  I looked at two YouTube videos that gave good ways to find free growing containers.

I followed their advance and was able to get two containers free and I plan on going back for more this week.


As you can see I've transition some into buckets and wooden raised bed.  

Here is a before and after view.

Okay my hand is starting to hurt but I wanted to share what's happening in my garden.

Choosing Joy

For the last two months every morning I wake up in pain.  Some mornings I wake up and can't move my hand.  I've been to the doctors and they tell me only time can heal the problem. So I go through the day with this "friend" pain that I didn't ask for and I wish would go away.  However through this "friend" I have also found joy.  I realize I may have this “friend” with me for the rest of my life I can't live being angry or feeling sorry for myself.  I have chosen to be happy.  By choosing to be happy I really have become a joyful person.  I'm doing more things that bring me joy.  I'm talking to my Creator more and not just talking, but thanking my Creator for everything.  I'm looking at the small things that make me happy and doing them.  Like a clean rug; vacuuming at 5o'clock in the morning just because I like how a clean rug looks. 
I'm going through one of the worst medical issues I've had to deal with but through it I'm learning who I am and what I'm made of. Don't get me wrong I've asked for the pain to go away and I believe it will but until then I will continue to be happy and grateful.
