Gardening 2012...The Worst Job is First
By Kraken on March 19, 2012
Today I gave into temptation--I worked in the gardens. I know...I know...it's too early, it's only March 19th, I should wait until the first or second week of April, which is my tradition. .But I had to get outside and get started....nothing was going to stop me.
We're having an unusually warm early spring it was in the 80's today....ugh! If you read my guest post on http://fourhensandarooster.com/moms-the-kraken-is-in-the-house/ you'll understand how New Englanders spend a lot time talking about the weather.
One of my least favorite gardening chores is cutting back my monster grasses. I have three HUGE mounds that line my side porch. I love how tall and thick they grow, the rustling sound they make on a breezy summer night and how their messiness pisses my neighbor off....stop it Kraken....I made a vow this is the year we'll get along, even if he's an asshole.
Like most gardeners, I begin my season by cleaning out my beds and cutting back my perennials and since I'm not the most disciplined person, it surprises me that I would open every gardening season with my least favorite chore. Which got me thinking...do you tackle your dreaded gardening chores first? Or last? Or a mix of both? What gardening chores do you procrastinate doing? I would love hear from you.
I hope 2012 is a productive and pleasurable gardening season for all of us!
