Whilst planting today, putting seeds in the soil that were supposed to go in the ground in May and April, I decided to present myself a gardening challenge. The yard is a partially contained mess. Sure, I've planted things, but weeds are sprouting everywhere and I still haven't gotten all the straw spread in the pathways which was a project I began in MARCH. I've been "trying"* to get in 15 minutes M-Saturday, and it hasn't been happening. So here's the plan: Beginning today, and extending through June 26, I will spend 30 minutes per day in the garden. First priority: weed paths, lay down cardboard/newspaper and straw. Second priority: weed beds. I will start with the part of the yard I can see when I sit at my desk to write and work out from there. I will take a before/after picture and do a short write up after each session. Knowing me and the prompt posting habits I have cultivated you will get to read about all this in August.
Wish me luck.
