When it comes to cancer fighting, there's the chemo, the surgery, the radiation, the diet, the nap... And now, there's the "no-more cancer garden."
We got the idea from one of the wonderful childrens books we found to help Nia deal with all of this, called The Goodbye Cancer Garden (I wrote about it here a little while back). This book struck the strongest chord with Nia and she's been talking about planting our own garden for the last two months.
The idea has many benefits: We get to watch the garden grow and flourish as I get well (and flourish!), eating the good vegetables will help me get stronger, we have something to look forward to in watching the garden grow, etc. etc.
While I won't be completely cancer-free by the time the pumpkins are ripe, I'll be closer to the finish line!
To double our luck, we planted two gardens: One at home, and one at Granddaddy's. And had fun in the process!
And after all that dirt & sun, we relaxed with these:
