Garden Day 2

The first slice of the new moon appears tonight. My goal is to weed my herb garden plant my two favorite basil plants and start hoeing my garden rows.  I plan to take advantage of the slice of moon and drop some roots in the ground.  It is my first time gardening by The Moon Phase Calendar App. I humbly ask The Moon Maiden to smile down on my efforts. šŸ’ššŸŒ’šŸ’š

The little bitty hoe that gets the job done. šŸ’š

The first row. I have fibromyalgia and I stopped taking pain medication a year ago. šŸ‘€ 1 down and I am still not broken. I am feeling encouraged. šŸ˜Š

Me and the hoe made three rows today and we are both still not broken. Well, maybe I am a little bit damaged. šŸ˜¢

Did you know that Mother Nature provided me the medicine for it right on the edges of my garden plot. 


The infamous dollarweed, aka pennywort. I bet many pay a lot of money to kill this bejeweled weed. All I had to do is pinch off a leaf and crumble it in my fingers and apply it to the blister. It is great for bug bites too. It comes with natural pain relief and anti-inflammatory properties all in this annoying little weed. šŸ˜‰

See it is already all better, no redness or swelling. I will try to get less blurry images next time. I did not check the images before moving on in my mission. I say live and learn. Nobody wants to see blisters clearly anyways. šŸ˜‡

broccoli plant, 1 whole raw egg, and 1 amazing Tumeric capsule

Broccoli, Collards, and Cauliflower are my first root plants for the beginning of the gardening season. They will benefit from the added calcium in the egg and the tumeric or aspirin, it is cheaper, is a booster. I had the Tumeric which I cannot take anymore because it is a natural blood thinner, so I decided to make good use of it.

If you have a white willow tree, or if you are nice to a neighbor that has one, why bother with aspirin, drop small pieces of willow bark in with the egg. Same effect.

Between each plant I planted an onion. Great complimentary plants. 

Ever onward. Tomorrow I will be helping my 99 years old Grandmama all day. Yay! She will be 100 on 28 April 2017. The garden can wait for the family matriarch. Mother Nature will understand. šŸ˜‰
