there is something really peaceful about gardening...
I think it is because I haven't had to pull one single weed yet-
Thanks Marne for suggesting square foot gardening- oh my gosh- I will never garden another way again. This method of gardening best fits my personality. Structured yet low maintenance, simple yet very rewarding, different yet tasty...lol- this is making me laugh....so what kind of garden method are you?? Maybe I should make up one of those online personality quizzes and call it "The Garden In You" Personality Test.
I think I was paid a quarter for every row I weeded growing up as a kid...but even though I got paid I still didn't have the choice if I wanted to weed or not...oh how I hated to weed as a kid- so thanks Mom for always teaching me those annoying yet essential life principles--
I love my little garden. It is simple and aesthetic. I enjoy my nightly ritual-- watering each plant and seeing how much it has grown...I hear it is good to talk to your plants...I will admit our conversations aren't the best. I did however congratulate the cucumber plant for wrapping himself finally around his cage. Such a good little cucumber you are...
