Your Garden Shouldn’t Be Perfect

Posted on Aug 29 2012 - 2:26am by Mike Lieberman

Do you strive for perfection in your garden?

Is it important for you for everything to be just so?

Are these questions that you ask yourself and beat yourself up about?

I don’t want an organic garden

People will often tell me that my garden isn’t “organic” because I am growing in plastic containers and the containers might be leaching BPA in the soil.

They will tell me that because of the water that I’m using and it’s not filtered in a certain manner that it’s not truly organic.

People will say that they don’t want to start unless they have the ideal conditions to grow their food in.

I usually wind up asking them, “Is it really that bad to grow in “non perfect” conditions as opposed to eating who knows what that we buy at the grocery store.”

Don’t be perfect

If you have been waiting for the perfect conditions and time to start, I challenge you to not be perfect.

I challenge you to do the best that you can with the conditions and knowledge that you are given to start and maintain your garden.
