What Did You Do Today?
The only problem with a natural woodland garden is that most people can't tell that you've mulched, weeded or moved plants around.
By most people I mean my husband.
When one's husband comes home and says, "What did you do today?", and you answer with what you think is a long list of serious garden chores. You know what I mean, some thing that should merit you a~I wasn't sitting around eating bon-bons all day, but worked my buns off~ serious credit. So I say "Can't you tell that I mulched, moved plants, weeded, cut down the grasses, and unloaded 20 bags of wet soil conditioner?" "Well no, not really, he says, but did you remember to _______?" "Well, no I say, I didn't even think about that!"
Jetfire in the garden now
