Separating The Plants From The Lawn

Remember, I mentioned in an earlier article, that I had to remove the grass from where the plants were?

Jamaican Urban Organic Farming: Separating The Plants From The Lawn

To the corner, the grass was tall and lush, with little worms roaming about; meanwhile my flowers were looking droopy and dry.

Well, today I took it a bit further, I dug a small trench and putting a border between the garden and grass. This will deter the latter from overwhelming the former.

You can do the same by #recycling any scrapes of #wood lying about your home. The digging was made easier because of yesterday’s rain. My back…is another issue😦

Now unto my next gardening project.

Jamaican Urban Organic Farming: Sawdust Path

The Sawdust Path

Nobody likes trekking mud into the house, especially if you have to go in and out ever so often to tend to your garden and water your plants. So, it occurred to me to make a sawdust path.

Seeing that I had two and a half bags left over from my procurement at ARC Manufacturing, last week. I used one bag to transform the path from a muddy mess.

Just over the border, you can see that I am still waiting on the grass to fill in.

Fibroids testimonial – Time for the big cut, Myomectomy surgery by Denise N. Fyffe

Fibroids: The Alien Assassins in My Body

fibroids-Laparoscopy courtesy of naturalfibroids-comSo its time for the big cut. Time to get these alien assassins out of my tummy. Thank God! The financial stress is real but my mind is on the surgery itself.

I opted to do the fibroid removal procedure – myomectomy – at St. Josephs hospital in Jamaica…thinking they will be cheaper. Let’s see if that is really so. Due to delays I arrive about two hours before my procedure, hungry and anxious. I pay my down payment, am admitted and after an hour’s wait – of which I am not amused – I am shown my room.

Then the needles come out, I put my big girl panties on – figuratively, because all I really have on is a thin piece a cloth with my butt out🙂.

More information is provided in my book. See details below.

Jamaican Urban Organic Farming: Pruning, A Necessary Evil

Jamaican Urban Organic Farming: Pruning, A Necessary Evil

Pruning, A Necessary Evil

Do you remember my coleus plant how it was tall and top heavy? It was leaning over, not able to support itself.

Jamaican Urban Organic Farming: Small Flowers

I got this coleus from Hi Pro. I have sensed used the pruned sections to start some baby plants.

I pruned it and notice now all the shoots growing closer to the base.

Jamaican Urban Organic Farming: Pruning, A Necessary Evil

Sometimes pruning is a necessary evil.

Above, in the picture to the left, that was the #coleus plant before pruning. The other pics show that I planted the parts I clipped off. I was able to get at least six healthy plants, with one other dying. Pruning your plants makes sense, no matter how scary it seems and how beautiful the plant appears before.

Fibroids testimonial – Surgery anxiety, what happens to the soul during surgery? by Denise N. Fyffe

Fibroids: The Alien Assassins in My Body

fibroid surgery courtesy of sflorg-com

It’s Sunday, 4 days before my myomectomy to remove my alien assassins – fibroids – and my mind is consumed by the thoughts of going under. I am sure this is of great concern to many who do surgical procedures, but it is no less distressing or more of a comfort to me.

I have no desire to delay the removal of my fibroids, because I have lived many years escalating from discomfort to pure agony. The strength of mind and body I was born with has caused me to endure more than I ought. For me, it was just an obstacle to childbirth, now its the thing that’s taking away my quality of life. But no more.

More information is provided in my book. See details below.
