Everyone at home is still asleep and I’m sitting alone at the dining table with a fresh pot of coffee brewing in pure, delicious silence. As you may know, I’ve been working on this writing class, so I feel like I’ve kinda gotten off-topic these last few weeks. The original idea for this blog was to help some eager, but hesitant, new gardeners find joy and build confidence in gardening. I thought of it as kind of a “no-drop” or no-man-left-behind sort of adventure and I still hope it will be.
I’ve spent a lot of time in front of the keyboard these last two weeks and not much time in the garden. It’s probably a good thing, though. Where I lack patience, I’ve inserted blogging. I’ve only had time to check on my garden a few times a day, as opposed to a few dozen. I do feel a little guilty, though. Not just because I’ve redirected my focus, at least temporarily, but because of how much I’ve enjoyed running off on these tangents and how much fun it’s been chatting with new online friends.
I’m eager to get back to the soil. Who knows? Maybe this weekend I’ll treat myself to a few fresh bags of soil and some nice, fresh mulch… and I’ll tell you all about it a new post. 😉
