I had to force myself out the door this morning to do some weeding in the garden. Our garden has had a rough time of it this year and it shows…. since it shows my motivation level is low… so I don’t go out and maintain stuff like I should….. which doesn’t help the condition of the garden… which affects my motivation level…… and round we go.
I knew that I really must get out there… And I knew I’d enjoy it if I just did it before it gets too hot. So I sucked it up and just got out there and did it. I set an easy goal. One hour of general weeding and much neglected maintenance. And I am so glad I did!
After looking past the huge gaps caused by both chicken and goat invasion this spring.
And the powdery mildew that I MUST treat before it gets out of hand.
And the harsh dirt that we garden in here in western Colorado, and the squash bugs and the…. STOP it already!
If I focus I can see the early tomatoes that promise a good tomato crop this year. I NEVER get tomatoes this early.
The Cantaloup that is enjoying the climb up its ladder trellis.
The dill that survived has seeds ready to harvest.
The volunteer pumpkin is turning out to be a volunteer squash!
Goats and happy bunnies enjoyed the welcome snack of greens and weeds that I pulled.
I actually love piddling around in the garden. This morning reminded me of that.
Now I really MUST go pay bills….. sigh.
