Pooh's Little Instruction Book, inspired by A. A. Milne
Saturday was cold but a beautiful sunny day and just perfect for gardening. There’s so much to do we didn’t know where to start.
The vegie patch needs attention. Plants don’t stop growing here just because it’s Winter.
While Ros sat and thought about where she’d start, I checked out how the vegies were doing...
It's looking a bit like a jungle at least from my level.
lots of chillies
The new red lettuce are doing OK.
plenty of snap peas
The carrots are growing well - not ready to harvest yet - and the bok choy looks healthy
still plenty of beans
The potted herbs are happy in the sunlight but I noticed there are so many weeds growing around them, it's looking a bit messy.
I think I'd better tell Ros to start weeding.
She's not sure..... There is so much that needs doing...
If you start a job, should you finish it before you move to the next?
What if it’s a big, never-ending job like weeding?
The weeding will take so long there won't be time to do all the other jobs. It's a dilemma.
Sitting in the sun drinking coffee and looking at the garden doesn't get the work done either.
In the cycle of life that is our garden one job creates another. When you start weeding you will notice a plant that needs trimming and that leads to pruning leads to shredding leads to composting leads to mulching leads to weeding (before spreading the mulch to suppress the weeds) …..
and then Ros goes inside and gets the camera and I can tell she’s thinking “I might start that weeding tomorrow”.
