No.. really I did. It had veggies... It had flowers for Spring, Summer and Fall... mulch and everything.
Now? Now I've got a shell of a garden. I'm down to one teeny veggie bed and only the flowers that come back every year and leftover, moldy mulch. It's downright depressing, but I just don't have the time or money to keep it up.
I miss ordering seeds, and I miss my sun room filed with tomato sprouts. I miss picking purple and yellow tomatoes with orange stripes from plants taller than I am. I miss giant zucchini and the kids eating sugar snaps peas from the vine faster than I can bring them in the house. I miss taking banana peppers to my Dad, and watching the neighbors avoid eye contact with me for fear of me pushing garden surplus on them.
Hell, I even miss discovering new garden pests (how could I forget that tomato horn worm with all the wasp eggs?). I miss watering everything in the evening and taking pictures of new blooms.
