Gone to seed



Broccoli gone to seed in my husband's garden last spring.
Currently, his garden spot is grown up in weeds as he was not able to plant anything this year before he died.  I'm not sure what I'll do with it next year, but I'm going to keep the fence up and keep the weeds beat down this year until I decide.  I have visions of becoming the old widow woman in the gardening hat with hoe in hand in a garden full of flowers.
We'll see what next year brings.

I am going to halt The Barn Collective for now.  I don't know if I will continue it at a later time or not.  I will be happy for someone to pick it up.  Just let me know.

Thank you to everyone for your kind comments and emails.  Words can be of such great comfort in times of grief.  We are very fortunate to have friends who have visited both at the hospital (two hours away) and at home, brought food, ran errands, looked after my mother, fed the cats, and even mowed the lawn.  My son and I are plodding along with each day.  He will be starting his permanent job next week after a delay due to the illness and death of his father.  I am glad he has something to occupy his mind.

Until next time.

Amy what you have gone through recently is so sad. Before you started Barn Collective I was trying to start a barn meme, but stopped when you started. When you are at a point in you personal life let's discuss this. Tom The Backroads Traveller

Amy, I was so sorry to hear about your husband, but you do sound like a very strong lady. I've enjoyed your barn linkup a lot, but I understand being ready for a change too. Take care; I'll still be reading whatever you do blog about!

God bless you and your son as you struggle with your new life without father and husband. I smiled at the thought of you as the old widow woman in the garden. glad you still have your sense of humor and i had no idea that brocoli has flowers. they are amazing. worth planting just to look at

Hi Amy, I'm sorry I just popped over to your blog and read the very sad news of your husband's passing.

I am so sorry for your loss. Please keep encouraged and lean hard on Jesus. He knows what you are going through.

Dear Amy, I am glad people stepped in to help you and your family. I can only imagine how difficult it is. I wish you son well in his job.

Amy, I've been thinking about you a lot in the past few days. Even though things have "gone to seed" at this point, those seeds will still be around in the future and will blossom forth and produce once again. Days once again will have sunshine. And the memories will never fade.

Amy, my heart hurst for you and just know that you have prayers coming your way. A year is a long time and you might feel the urge to tackle that garden next year! Much love, Cheri
