Things I've Learned About Gardening


- The promise of fresh, home grown produce requires patience. I do not possess patience.


- Weeding must be done, lest the plants be suffocated.

- Always wear a hat. Always. You'll prevent sunburn, and look adorable!


- Weeding by hand is easier done when the ground is damp.


- It's better to lay drip line before the plants are in, lest you squash the poor, unsuspecting lettuce.


- Gardening is like raising children. Feed and water. Pray over it continuously. Hope they grow big and strong and produce plentiful offspring. Prevent the bad weeds from taking root. Do all you can, and wait to see how it turns out.

Happy Planting,

That's cute and all of it so true.
I love your pictures and your garden looks great. I do love the hat and yes you do look adorable. :)

I want to see you in that hat!

Your garden looks great so far. Looks like you managed to tell the plants from the weeds, after all. :-)

Yeah, I spent a few weeks being lazy and let everything grow until I could tell them apart. :)

Oh so very true!!! Treat them well and they will treat you well.

Once last summer I decided to "weed" the garden early on in the season. I was determined to be a good gardener that year. When hubby came home I told him excitedly what I had done... that he didn't have to weed this week! That I'd done my share!

After that... a bit later on... I saw him outside quietly working on the plot I had "weeded". When I asked him what he was doing, he answered (pitifully, if you ask me)... "Oh nothing.. just replanting the radishes you dug up!"

And the moral of the story is... radish sprouts look like weeds to an amateur... always ask before you yank! :D
