Sometimes I wonder if I really WANT to do some of these things or if I just think, "I can do that" and I seek out to prove myself.
I think I want to plant a garden. Small at first. I have about a 6 foot by 3 foot area for a raised bed close to the kitchen for right now. Might expand later when I truly earn a green thumb. I've been container gardening for years now and I do like it and I don't. I have to admit that I forget to water sometimes. I don't like weeding (ugh) and I don't like bugs. I wonder if this means I should just trust the experts. Yet something inside says "come on. it's not that hard"
So is it? Those of you with gardens please chime in. Tell me your thoughts, resources, fun ideas. I wanna hear it.
Right now I'm chasing a squirrel away from my blackberry bush. Jerk. It's covered in bird netting and all and this squirrel thinks he's gonna get the few berries I have. And don't tell me about the need for water theory. There's a creek in our backyard.
Bottom line is I think a garden could be fun. I think Madi would LOVE playing in the dirt and she already likes eating my basil and blackberries. So, I just can't imagine what could be better. Help.
