Thursday Thirteen Ed 15

Thirteen Things about GARDENING

1.It is a stress reliever to work with soil and plants
2.It gives you a sense of accomplishment
3.Weeding burns a lot of calories and the chore is never finished
4.Fresh vegetables and fruits taste 100 percent better than store bought, especially tomatoes
5.It gives you a fright when you see a bug, slug or spider when you are not used to it.
6.You are able to share with friends and family.....and even strangers
7.Its a learning experience
8.Lettuce regrows as fast as you can eat it ...practically
9.There is never enough onions
10.One zucchini plant is enough
11.No matter how hard you try somethings just wont turn out
12.You feel close to God in the garden
13.Once you have a garden you wait with anticipation all winter to get started again. Even when you end the season with relief from less gardening work.

Yay for gardening. That reminds me, I want to plant some Gui Lan this year. It might be the only plant in my garden! hehehehe!

It's all SO true!!! An other one would be to learn what pests are in the area, and plant accordingly... Where I live, it's very humid, and powdery mildew is a BIG problem... and brassicas are always attacked by those little worms.... so avoiding problematic plants keeps gardening easy (with an infant and a toddler, that's important!)

Yay! You finally got here!
Thursday Thirteen has come to an end.
I have enjoyed my visits here and consider us friends.
Thank you for sharing your thirteens with me.
The comments you left me filled me with glee.
It is hard to believe it is really true.
I am trying very hard to not be blue.
Happy TT'ing!

Every single one is tso true, but I'm not bothered by bugs The thing that caught me the most offguard were the HUMMINGBIRDS!!! When they're really close to you, they sound like giant bugs flying at your head! Before I knew what it was, I actually tried to swat at one once!!! lol!!!

We need to share gardening tips!!!!! You can see my gardens (the flower ones) on the Heatherized Home link on my homepage!
