For those of you who haven’t given-up on me yet, thank you for hanging around. I’m sure you know by now that my silly, little catch phrase is, “Life Got In My Way… Again!” So, again, another long break between posts because… well, nah, I’m not going to say it!!!
I always have so many plans and dreams during the Winter months and so much excitement for the coming growing seasons. Winter of 2015/2016, I again made my plans, went through the seed catalogs over and over to find, in my opinion, the best of the best seeds and, of course, I bought Heirloom, Non-GMO and Organic. Still having seeds left over from the year before, I ordered the seeds I was in need of and organic starter soil. Over the next couple of weeks, I made about 200 starter pots from newspaper to start my seeds in. What a job that was!!!
My order came in and I quickly filled all those little pots with the soil and planted the seeds. I then found space at nearly every window in my house to put them all. I watched and waited for those little seedlings to poke their little leaves through the soil and they came in beautifully. I had such high hopes of having the best garden I’ve ever had since, well, forever. Then reality set in.
When Spring came, there was always something else that needed doing, so I wasn’t able to prepare my garden and plant the seedlings. When it became obvious to me that I wasn’t going to be able to have my garden, I gave my baby seedlings away to friends who were good enough to share the bounty with me!!! Yummy!!!
Well, it’s 2017 and another growing season is upon us. I, once again, have high hopes of getting my garden planted!!! So, I ordered more seed, made more newspaper pots and started planting the seeds. My seedlings are coming in nicely and I look at them every day with such anticipation. I’m going to have my garden this year!!! I have to… I just have to!!!
It’s near the end of March and still kind of cold outside. I went out to my garden the other day to see what really needs to be done. My veggie area is so overgrown with weeds and grass that what I think I’m going to do is put my lawn mower on the lowest setting and cut the weeds down. They aren’t very tall, but there are a lot of them. Then, and I hope this works as well as I’ve been told, I’m going to cover the area with several layers of newspaper and cover with mulch. Hopefully this will choke out the weeds and I will be able to get my garden started again.
So, what I’m really hoping is that this will be my year!!! I’m hoping to never again have to say, “Life Got In My Way… Again!”
See you again soon!!!
