my new culinary herb bed, + frog

St. John's Wort & Jacob's Ladder
Courgettes & eggshells in a somewhat empty raised bed with plotted square feet.

I am slowly slowly getting back to things. The stress I was feeling because of my job was wearing, wearing, wearing me down. I stopped crafting, I stopped taking photos, I disliked most of my hobbies. Everything started to feel very bad, and that's no way to live. I've left that behind now and I'm scared about what comes next, but the fear is easier than the stress of before. I've started making again, I've started growing again, I seem to have started everything again. Most of my photos have been coming out blurry, it's like I really am starting over.

My 1st & only paleo book. 
Excellent as an introduction & for reference, good selection of recipes with nice pictures but unfortunately I haven't found many of the recipes that good yet. They're OK, just not amazing. Maybe it's just my tastes.
