Last Saturday was one of those God-given gardening days: just too damp, chilly, and windy to enjoy even one minute in the great outdoors. I spent the day half-watching cheesy broadcast movies and detailing the interior.
Around tea time, I realized what a stress reducer it is to manage the garden so that it can look after itself most of the time. Intensive weeding is the key; that, careful litter control, and native plants that get along with rain water.
Several of the plants leafed out yesterday in spite of the weather. It’s good to know they’re as well-managed as they can be, so I won’t have to worry about injuring baby leaves while playing catch-up on maintenance.
