Recently I am a little too busy to spend enough time in the garden, which in this season is not really something I’d love to say. For mysterious reasons grass and weeds grow faster than anything else.
On the top of that I’ve been away from my garden for more than a week - travelling recently. The difference I saw in my garden ‘before and after’ in only a week, is tremendous. In our climate zone everything seems to be so fast during spring, especially when it’s warm and humid like we have it this year.
I came back last Monday, little sad after taking long goodbye with a large group of about 50 traveling companions.
I entered the garden and had no idea at exactly which point to start. Whether to plant veggie seedlings, get rid of the early spring cleaning remains, which I couldn’t remove before my trip, remove grown weeds or start lawn mowing. I decided to start with veggies then weeding. Sorry lawn, as not my favorite piece of the garden, you have to take care of yourself for some time.
I wish I could have few little helpers in the garden or at least two arms and two legs more... maybe this could make me completing faster my home gardening jobs…
At the end I deserve also some rest, so me and my garden have to compromise. As compromise is a concept of finding agreement through communication, through a mutual acceptance of terms—often involving variations from an original goal or desire, I need to communicate… with my garden or with Mother Nature, what do you think?
Or maybe it’s a compromise between myself and myself?
