I love gardening and every year I plant a garden but this year with all the chaos going on around here I figured I didn't have time for the upkeep required for a garden. This morning I was in a funk, I have been for a while, so I decided maybe I could do a little garden just to have something to do in the mornings. I know it's a little late to get started but I need to feel productive and that 2 hours of down time really isn't good for me. I had started a winter garden last fall but then Bobo got sick and then Tanner got sick and then Oscar left and by that time there was never time to work on the garden. I quit watering and weeding and figured the plants would all die off and I would start over again next year. Today when I went out back to see how much work i needed to plan for this weekend I discovered that some of my vegetables had survived the winter and were still growing.

The onions were waist high and the tallest of them where over 3 feet.

The carrots were huge and weighed at least a half a pound each.
I'm not sure what we are having for dinner tonight but it will definitely contain carrots and onions.
