I went out to my new garden again this morning. My plan was to do several things but, naturally, I ended up doing other stuff entirely. I'm not easily distracted......Oh Look! There's a squirrel! Yeah, that's me. But it was okay. I was still doing stuff that needed to be done.
My aim for my garden this summer is Just Enjoy. That's it. I like sticking seeds in the ground and watching them grow. If the seeds don't come up, I can always plant something else. Yes, I do want (and need!) to grow veggies but I'm also willing to just see what happens.
What had I intended to do? There are several more saplings that need to be hewn down--growing too close to the house. I'll get to that task soon enough.
What did I do instead? I happened to find a bag of potting soil that my tenant left behind when she moved. It was like an unexpected gift from the universe. So I put that to good use immediately. I cleared two pots in my container garden. Then I planted Lemon Basil and Yellow Wax Beans. Two of my very most favorite things.
Do I wanna hurry up and clear all the rest of my container garden? You betcha. It's a mess! It's gonna take time but there's so much there to work with. One Step. Just One Step.
Go plant something.
Life is good.
