I am not a gardener. I do not enjoy being outside, getting dirty, planting flowers, vegetables or anything else for that matter. Not my cup of tea. But, I can appreciate the beauty of such work (not to mention the delicious tomatoes) so I see the work as a necessary evil.
Today I planted 2 flats of flowers around the front yard, 2 tomato plants, some parsley and basil. It didn’t take long, and since the weather is still quite mild, it really wasn’t much of an effort… so I can’t complain too much. But, as usual, the end result was worth the effort. It is such a feeling of accomplishment to look around and see the flowers adding color and life to the yard.
I’ll really appreciate it when I have more tomatoes than I can eat.
