Okay, so my yard still looks like this. And last month was way too cold to really getting anything going out there. But! I am resolved to start getting it together this month. It looks like the frigid temperatures are behind us, and after this wet mid-week, this weekend is looking perfect for gardening.
You know, I recently spent some time ruminating about whether it is worth it to garden. After this unusually cold winter with all these freezes that destroyed my friends’ gardens, I thought, “What’s the point?” And even if there aren’t freezes, everything eventually dies. And don’t even get me started on annuals, how depressing. But, then, I thought about how that is the nature of life and love, too, isn’t it? To everything a season, blahbity blah. So, I officially come down on the side of, “It is better to have gardened and lost, then to never have gardened at all.” So let’s pilfer from Dan Gill some more, shall we? You really should buy his book, Month to Month Gardening Louisiana.
