You may've thought I gave up, and you'd be right, but, only for a while. My yearning to have a garden space I love has kept me going. Although, I may not be very talented, is no reason for me not be able to produce some things and enjoy the space.
I have reacquainted myself with the nursery. As a gardener, I have found a home. I knew it when I walked through the tables of blooming flowers and gorgeous hanging baskets.
Now, I got off to great start with my seeds. Transplanting them disheartened me with the sight of my dead little seedlings. But, I am determined to figure this out, and I am set on having a beautiful and somewhat productive little piece of land, here. Potager still lingers in my thoughts...
When I thought my seeds had all died, I tossed the soil, still containing seeds....and Voila! I think I have some lettuce growing amongst a heap of twigs and dead leaves. Who woulda thunk, huh?
I have to remind myself, I'm new at this and it won't happen overnight. I am thoroughly intrigued by gardening. Mixing soil, composting, weeding - all things I need to learn more about, but will take time. This may not be my ideal...but I will learn how to make it work and make it be a space to enjoy.
