I do love to garden. It's in the top three or four on my hobby list.
However, I do NOT like it when I have to garden on a schedule... or when there are the "I must get it done" kind of things on my "to do" list.
That said, this year seems to be heading in that direction...
Must plant, must weed, must water, must fertilize...
It's where I've been spending most of my time these past few weeks, even months since we've actually had a pretty nice spring so far... even if many of my fellow Washingtonians don't agree.
Of course I also realize that with out work, I wouldn't be able to enjoy the beauty of my gardens.
Just when you get it all caught up, well there's another load to do.
And soon there will be produce to pick in the veggie garden... along with nightly watering in the hot, at least hot to us, days of July and August. But it would be nice to pull up a chair and enjoy the late night sunsets of summer.
