My Gardening posts are always wildly unpopular but it's my blog and I get to decide. I like to cook and I love pottering about the house and books and clothes and stuff but lately the Garden's been my main priority. Probably 'cause I'm trying to whip it back into shape on the cheap and in adverse climate conditions and without a staff of gardeners to action the hard stuff (more's the pity). It looks beat up and sub par and scrappy but I love it all the same. Here's some random stuff it's taught me:
* You cannot make things happen by sheer force of will. I know. I'm sad too.
*Preparation is Key
*Sugar cane mulch is your Friend
*Water is expensive
*Growing something from a cutting is intensely satisfying
*Shop and nursery bought Plants are prohibitively, frighteningly expensive
*Varmints will break your heart
*there's no place for Plant prejudice, if it grows, it stays
*Play the Garden Cards you're dealt
*I have Green Thumbs (sometimes)
*Gardeners are the nicest people (although spookily, there are exceptions to this rule. Sad but true)
*Patience is a Virtue
*Bush turkeys and their evil filthy claws and protected species status
are the Work of the Devil
Anything you wish to add? Learnt anything from your hobby lately?
Happy first day of Spring.
