I’ve talked about not having a perfect garden before, but I still get questions and comments about failing when gardening.
People will say that they are scared of failing or making a mistake. They want things to be perfect.
My sage advice to them is, “You will fail when you garden.”
It’s impossible to avoid. It doesn’t matter what you see on other blogs, read in books and magazines or watch on TV. It ain’t all perfect.
Once you get over and realize that, it makes it that much easier.
When making those mistakes the most important thing is that you learn something and continue on. You don’t want to keep repeating the same mistake over and over again. Pretty sure that’s the beginnings of insanity.
The first is that you shouldn’t plant spinach in the warmer weather and the other is that mint needs space to grow outside of the container.
Lessons learned and I’ll move on.
Who cares how perfect and great everything seems on other blogs, magazines and the TV shows. Learn from your own experience and keep on going.
