i planted my seedlings for spring. i'm trying tomatos for the first time. i've realized that hokey myth about gardening making you feel better is actually true. i can sit and stare at my plants growing and i literally will feel good. i would even go so far as to say excited. and what is better than playing in dirt? i used to think there was no point to flowers because i couldnt eat them and i should focus my efforts on vegtables. than i grew my first flowers and spent too long staring at them. i love them. if you need some therapy, grow some plants. here are a few i recomend that are hardy and grow fast: hostas- out door perenial. yucca plant- indoor tropical. rhubarb- outdoor perenial (grows big and easy to cook with). day lily- outdoor perenial that flowers all summer. pumkins- all you need is one and you'll be eating it for months and its amazing how many recipes you can make. Anyways, now i sound like a total green thumb, but the glory of plants is they are easy to replace when they die.
