I don’t know about you but I think everyone at one point in time in their life has either had a garden or wanted one. I don’t think that there is anything better than a fresh grown tomato picked right off the vine. I always look forward to seeing the fruit and vegetables grow and look forward to the time when I can reap the harvest, the benefits of what I have sown.
One of the hardest things about a garden though is the constant upkeep. You work the soil and get it all cleared out and remove any rocks or foreign objects that are in the way that will impede the growth of your plants. You excitedly pick out the seeds that you want to grow in anticipation of the crop it will produce. You sow the seeds into the ground and time seems to stop as you wait for the first signs of life to come up out of the soil. You finally see the plants emerge and can barely contain your excitement but then you also begin to notice other items popping up in your garden that you know you didn’t sow there. You pull the couple of pesky weeds out and feel accomplished and go on about your day. You go back the next morning only to find that more weeds have popped up, your plants are growing though and as much as you would like or need to pick the weeds out, you don’t have time because you have to go to work or perform whatever tasks that are on your plate that day.
