I love it.
Maybe it's because I love to putter in the garden and I have realized over the past few years that it is quite therapeutic. But it really got me thinking about what gardening has really taught me.
I am relatively new at this and I am always amazed at what comes from persistence and patience and old fashioned hard work. But while I plan and dig and pray, I realized that the most important thing I have learned is that there is always a way.
If something doesn't grow in a certain spot, maybe it needs more sun (so move it). Or, maybe it doesn't like the soil (so enhance it). Or maybe the variety is too delicate to withstand our winters (so research it and either find a hardier variety or venture into cold framing). There truly is always a way.
So I thought if I documented everything I tried to grow, it would help me move forward into the next season and become a better gardener.
