There has been a lot going on in my wee corner to of the world lately. What with the renovation – we are nearly there, working on my next book, we are also nearly there too, and an upcoming speaking tour where I shall be sharing the love I have for my garden and growing veggies in it. As a result there isn’t a lot going on in my garden.
With the words of a very wise magazine editor ringing in my ears “Sarah don’t let all the writing take you from the garden” I feel convicted. Just a few short months ago my garden was looking the best ever! I was so proud of it. It was almost spring ready – in the middle of autumn! But as we draw closer to winter, it has come undone. It is a Jungle. A complete mess. I need to take action.
Public shame is a fabulous thing, so I shall rely on the supportive expectation of my wonderful readers to redress the balance in the garden. Every day I shall endeavour to get out there and do at least one thing – that should hopefully lead on to more and return my garden to a state of high productivity – on top of everything else I must do. I shall keep you posted – it may just be a photo, sometimes from somewhere exotic (but sadly not in my garden) and other times it may be the achievement of a major project, of which I have an ever expanding list to choose from or even just weeding.
So on this Monday, early in May I shall get dirt under my nails at least once a day, for the greater good of my garden, my peace of mind and my authentic journey into sharing what I love to do and actually finding the time to do it.
Come again soon – it may be a bit bumpy, but I shall garden on!
