Left Behind

Remember how I told you not to worry about the garden and how you weren’t behind and everthing would get done little by little, 15 minutes here and 15 minutes there?

WHAT WAS I TALKING ABOUT??!

Just before mid-May, the time you should really start the planting your head off here in Colorado, Dave and I spent the better part of a week in Estes Park.  But I was calm.  I was cool.  I thought all the better – now when I garden I can be sure it isn’t too early.

Then I came home and got butt-kicking sick (sinus infection, cough like a sailor, bronchitus – yuck!).  Eleven days now of I-don’t-feel-good-I-can’t-breathe-nose-blowing-raspy-voiced yuck.

Now – I am behind in the garden.  I know it is my own standard, but if I don’t have absolutely everything done by June 1?  I have failed.  It makes me crazy!

I will not have everything done by June 1.  I am drowning in the swirling pit of my own failure in the garden.  Please feel sorry for me.

Gardeners the world over have left me behind…Jeanie

NOTE TO SELF:  maybe 15 minutes in the morning and 15 minutes in the evening will help me get it all done before I leave for Kentucky…

  1. You are sooooo not alone here. I was so psyched to see my stuff actually coming up, I forgot I needed to plant more. Oops! Hopefully this week.

  2. Awww, I LOVE those pics of Gemma! She looks adorable in her yellow sun dress (thanks Aunt Dessa!), and even though she has never tasted a radish, she looks cute holding them!
