It is dirty.
It is a lot of work.
There are bugs and other pests.
To me, it just didn't make sense.
Now I get excited about starting my garden every year.
I spend hours pulling weeds and tending to it like a baby.
I wear my apron and my rubber boots.
Sometimes I even garden barefoot which totally grosses my hubby out.
I just tell him "I am one with the Earth"
Anyways, to fuel my love of gardening, is Pinterest.
If you have not joined that magnificent site, you are missing out hugely.
I have a board dedicated to gardening and I will actually search gardening stuff instead of cleaning my house or feeding my children....
...and brushing my teeth.
The ideas I get from sites pinned on Pinterest get me so excited. I want to have fancy container gardens throughout our property. I want herbs. I want a garden shed. I want a rustic fence around my vegetable garden. I want every possible garden tool out there. I want every single book. I want pretty gardening aprons and sun hats. I want to make relishes/jams/pickles/sauces until my cupboards are overflowing.
Um...yeah....basically I need 27 hours in a day and need to win a lottery.
This will be the year my friends. The year that I grow the largest tomato in the Universe. The year that I actually succeed at growing broccoli. The year that I open a veggie stand at the end of my driveway where I will sit in my rubber boots, apron and bonnet and sell my veggies to the locals.
OK....I took it too far.
Are you on Pinterest?
Any tips are appreciated muchly.
