Proud Mama Moment...Albys Garden...

This is my youngest son. We call him Alby.
Alby has faced many challenges in his life.
One has been the fact that he was born with Cerebral Palsy.
But strangely, that's not his biggest challenge. He accepts his lot in life with grace and dignity. Well....there was that rant a couple of years ago, but who wouldn't rant now and again when others attend to your every need. Hang on! Isn't that what we all wish for? Hmmmm....I think he's having a lend of us...
Anyway, I digress.
Alby has a great life. He lives in his own home, has a dog and a garden and 24 hour support from a great team.
But he's still trying to figure out who he is.
Is he Alby the Anime fan? Surely there's more to him than Naruto reruns.
Is he Alby the Greyhound owner? Well if his dog is the measure of his worth, then I have to wonder. She's a Chihuahua in a pony's body and adorable but not that bright.
Is he Alby the sports fan? Nothing wrong with that, but where's the sense of accomplishment in that, other than vicariously?
He and his eldest brother have cooked up a new business for Alby. It's a small lot productive garden business, and he is his own guinea pig.
The purchase of a couple of pretty ritzy garden pods, recently installed in his courtyard, yielded this harvest of lettuce and yellow cherry tomatoes after just six days! The capsicums (peppers) and chilli were already in his garden.
We are very impressed!
So Alby has decided to start a blog, recording the successes and perhaps not so successful ventures of his garden and his growing business.
That's his brand spanking new blog, on my list of blogs I follow on your right.
He hasn't said much yet, but believe me, once he gets going, he'll never shoosh up! I know that much about my boy.
Will you help by visiting his new blog and becoming a follower?
He'd be tickled pink to know he actually had a audience to read his ramblings (sorry, do ramble...)
I'll meet you over there!
