It sounds as if you had a wonderful afternoon today. I too love planting gardens and I have started with my 8 year old daughter as well. Unfortunately, it is still quite cold outside for us, but we have been working for the past month on starting our flowers inside. Like you said, everything is just so expensive right now so hopefully we will actually be saving money this way! However, this is so relaxing. We have found that hours just speed by as we are filling in our soil, planting our seeds and watering. Just the fresh smell of the dirt makes spring feel so much closer. And it is so fullfilling for us when we run downstairs each morning to lift the covers and we see the little green plants starting to pop out of the soil. It is an exciting observation and bonding time for us.
So when you talk about wanting to feel better and more healthy from this, I understand how you feel. We will be starting our vegetables tomorrow with our own expectations of fresh beans, lettuce, tomatoes, corn (and whatever else we can hopefully grow and keep alive before we can plant them outside). So keep planting, stay happy and start healing! I can't think of anything better!

We have 5 inches of new snow, so I am building a snowman. I wish you the best green thumb and please keep on with your garden as it is wonderful therapy to work out in the garden. Hugs to you sweetie.
