I feel like I know nothing about gardening. I know enough to keep most things alive and which plants are weeds and which are not, but nowhere near enough to grow a truly successful garden. Zak’s the garden pro, but he works so very much. I am taking time this year to do my own research and attempt to learn the individual traits of the plants we are growing. Some plants don’t like having too much water and some are forever thirsty. I feel a little dependent on Z for this type of information and often he’s so tired from work, he doesn’t remember what needs to be done or he just forgets to have me do it. Things get pushed back and have quite a bit this year. The pepper seeds didn’t grow and I was so caught up in my own work, I didn’t even notice. Our tomatoes, nasturtiums, sunchokes, flowers, asparagus, herbs, potatoes, and a few other things are all wild and lovely. I want to be more attentive and take on a larger slice of responsibility in our growing. I’ll have to make the time, but it is definitely something I want to work at making the time for.
