I had been putting it off. You know, cleaning up the garden. Moving the dead plants into the compost pile. I should have done it weeks ago. I bought some Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, cabbage and broccoli. Weeks ago.
The poor plants were sitting there waitin gto be planted. I felt guilty and yet, I just didn’t feel like puttering in the garden.
The end of the season is hard to accept. I’m really bad about pulling off the last of the tomatoes & letting them ripen on a windowsill or canning the last of it. I just don’t want to admit that it’s over.
But I forced myself out there over two weekends, and felt the renewal that comes with working on plants in soil.
And it felt great.
I need to find ways to keep myself motivated year round. Hopefully this weekend, I’ll go out and plant lettuce and spinach.
What do you do when you’re in a slump?
