It has taken fifty-five years but I finally got my hands in dirt! I decided to overcome my aversion to dirt and getting dirty and try my hand at planting vegetables.

My wise stepfather called me on my recent request to assist with this years garden.  So off I went to my mom’s and had pepper planting 101. To be honest it wasn’t nearly as bad as I thought it would be. I did use gloves ( one step at a time) and I did bring extra shoes (can’t have dirt in the car). It was such a momentous occasion mom missed her senior exercise class and my stepfather took a picture!

To be honest it was all very grounding, being a part of nature and most importantly spending quality time with mom and John…
