Garden Ramblings The perfect garden?Posted Tuesday, April 7, 2009, at 5:46 PM
I STILL have not planted my warm weather crops. Before long, I might as well just plant them in the soil, BUT not today.
I saw a blog today about someone wanting to start the "perfect organic garden". The best advice I saw given was to not expect a perfect garden immediately or for the next few years. I see the garden as a continual work in progress, so I don't know if I will ever have a perfect garden.
One of our garden club visitors this past week is a gardener of at least 40, if not 50 years and she did not have the perfect garden last year. I believe it was beans that did not perform well, but we are almost all going to have something that does not live up to expectations. I have a number of them each year.
My point is, don't be discouraged if your first garden does not work out according to your dreams when you put it in. The weeds are going to always seem stronger than your will and nature is going to throw a twist. Karma.
I just brought in what I HOPE will be our last load of firewood for the season. When Debbi and I brought the last trailer in, we put it up in "summer storage" because we thought we had enough to last near the house. Not quite. One more night????
