This morning as I was planting some seeds for the garden this year. You know January is a great time of year to start seeds, especially herbs, which I use a lot of both in cooking and in my soaps. Even though I enjoy winter, I know that spring is coming quick and snow, sun, or rain the more I get started now and growing well, the easier the transition will be.
This is a brief story about how when you are too close to something it's hard to see the truth about it.
Do you have a time of year where it seems like there's just not enough time or you just can't get it all together?
Growing a garden, whether flowers or vegetables, means that there will be weeds to be dealt with. Even in spaces that were bare before putting a plant that you want to grow in the ground, for some reason will invite other plants to take root as well.
Last spring (our first spring in this home) I completely avoided one of the flowerbeds. While it had a wild charm about it, I would look at it and be completely overwhelmed. This bed had several untamed lavender bushes, ground covers that I figured would take years to either take out or get within manageable parameters and, to top it off, was full of rocks.
