|Not my actual garden!|
Of course, there's more to it than that. Weeding, watering, staking, thinning. But it will be worth it in the end. I'm pretty excited.
I was looking at quotes for this entry and ran across this one: "It takes a while to grasp that not all failures are self-imposed, the result of ignorance, carelessness or inexperience. It takes a while to grasp that a garden isn't a testing ground for character and to stop asking, what did I do wrong? Maybe nothing." ~Eleanor Perenyi
I really like that. Not only because of what it says about our gardening efforts, but also what it says about life. It's not always our fault when things go wrong. Absolutely we should own up to mistakes and bad choices, but sometimes life just happens. That's a good reminder.
What lessons have you learned from your gardening efforts?
