Day 31 – She wheeled the dung in the wheelbarrow

She wheeled the dung in the wheelbarrow
Along a stretch of road;
But she always ran away and left
Her not-nice load.   –excerpt from A Girl’s Garden by Robert Frost

There have been many times in my life I have been ambitious about a new project or hobby, and then along the way, I find something else that takes my attention.  This is something that frequently happens when I decide to plant a garden of some sort.  It doesn’t even need to be a garden.  Sometimes it’s just a couple containers of flowers that last as long as their little plant hearts let them survive without water and attention.  Today I decided to attempt a veggie and herb garden.  My husband is secretly making bets behind my back (ok, he’s straight up telling me) about how long the garden lasts.  He hasn’t even given me a chance to put the plants in the ground!

I think I may have been a little over ambitious.  My yard is covered in decorative rock.  I thought it would be a quick and easy shuffle of rocks and a little layer of dirt, and ta da!  Planted garden!  Alas, this is not the case.  I shuffled some rock, and I layed out some dirt, and still nothing planted.  I have a lot more rock to move and I need to mix the soil into my gardens soil so it’s plant-able soil.  I have been doing some personal video of this project, I intend to share this with the filmmaker.  It can be some comic relief during this very crazy serious journey.

If anyone has gardening tips (remember, I have a black thumb!) I would greatly appreciate it.  My garden is going to need all the help it can get.  🙂
