There is a garden of earthly delights....and it takes a lot of work to maintain it!

GardensGardens are not as complex as one might expect. In truth, a garden is just a controlled growing environment for plants. The gardener controls the types of plants growing in the garden and the location and manner in which they are displayed.

In addition, the gardener must control the intrusions of unwanted plants. The definition of a weed is merely a plant that grows where you don't want it to grow, and any plant can be considered a weed by growing in an undesirable area of the garden. It's not the plant itself, as a matter of fact,  some weedy plants actually have beautiful blooms that could stand on their own in the right place and under the right circumstances.

The gardener must also deal with pests of every kind. Leaf eating insects and caterpillars, root eating moles and shrews, and ravenous squirrels and deer can decimate the most verdant flora. A gardener knows how to eliminate the threat from pests without poisoning the harvest.

The gardener also makes sure that the conditions are right for growth. .The soil must have the right amount of nutrients and moisture for the intended plantings. A good gardener know what each plants needs, and recognizes what will be provided naturally, and which will needed to be added by amendment.

The secret of gardening, and any other endeavor, is actually quite simple. You don't fight conditions and the elements that you cannot change. Rather, you adapt to them. You make the adjustments necessary for proper growth and a potential harvest down the road!

So don't fear the challenge, embrace it. Who knows, you just might do a lot better job than you think you will!

I just got off the phone with my friend Gina.  She posted here tonight.  She also said I sound more like myself.  As for the starvation, no way!  I was a total pig tonight.  Will blog about it tomorrow.  BTW-  I really liked your new post.  I was surprised.
