Another beautiful spring day passes and I realize that I am unable to care for the garden. All my energy, what small amount I have left at the end of the day, is directed at caring for myself, trying to keep myself whole. To whatever extent planting and weeding is what my soul craves, the garden will benefit. Unless there are radical changes soon, this year is far more likely to be one where I simply enjoy whatever is there, document it in photos and plan for next year. Just as so many home improvement projects will have to wait.
