Planting Therapy

PhD Day: 61
Date: 29 April 2024

As much I’d like this day to be all about research that I keep putting off, I actually spent it first in the garden center picking up garden tools and berry bushes and then from 1pm to 3pm I was digging into soil at the MSSl Allotments that were arranged for the staff. Adam, electrical engineer, has organised this activity this year. I was sharing a 1x3m plot with him. I have managed to plant my rasberry and gooseberry bushes. Adam needed space for his parsnips to I took my blackcurrant bush home to plant it there. It was all super enjoyable on a beautiful sunny day. It was definitely a good meditation for me while chatting about the struggles of building an instrument for a Vigil spacecraft which was useful to know too!
