What garden? I don’t have a garden…
The word garden can make the UNgardener feel very overwhelmed. I only started calling certain spaces in my yard a “garden” just recently. Relatives in my husband’s family are actual FARMERS… so it’s always felt very awkward for me to call my lonesome tomato plant next to my eaten-by-who-knows-what-pumpkin plant a “garden”. It’s really unfair though to compare my yard to their farm when they have an entire crew working 40+ hours a week tweaking it to perfection. I love my yard, but really only want to spend 30 minutes a day working on it. Haha… or less if it strikes my fancy!
BUT I’m here to prove to you that bing.com agrees that we ALL are gardeners… it only states that the ground need be “planted”… not that it’s prolific and busting over with flowers and produce. So long as you put in a minimum amount of work each month you can create something amazing with the simplest of approaches.
SO in closing, I say, go sit in your garden with a cup of tea this morning (or wine tonight) and enjoy every inch of your “planted area of ground” or “GARDEN”!! If you’d rather though, we can find solace in calling it our “UNgarden”. With one foot in front of the other and solid plans, we will make our UNgarden our dream space THIS YEAR!
