I used to be much more enthusiastic about gardening. In the first year we moved to our current home, I spent a few months designing our garden boxes, sourced heirloom seeds and grew a number of my veggies during summer. It was an exhausted process. We inherited a concrete backyard, and had to place garden boxes with organic soil on top. But it was good. We had an excellent summer with broad beans, tomatoes, eggplants, and Jerusalem artichokes.
