It's that time of the year again!!!

Strange how humans are never happy with what they have. Is it ingrained in our DNA to always want what we don't have? Or is it just our lot in life to always want what is on the other side of the fence?

It's raining, we want sunshine. It's sunny, we want rain cause we think it's too dry. It's winter and it's too warm, we want snow. It's now very, very, very cold with lots and lots and lots of snow and I've had ENOUGH!!!. Hmmmm.....maybe it's just me. Nah! I don't think so.

Where is this post going? Well last fall I decided I was not going to plant a garden this coming spring. Don't have the time. It doesn't grow well, or it grows too well and we have produce coming out of the ying yang.....etc...etc....

Wellllllll....guess what. Yeah.

The seed catalogue came in the mail in early December. I did really well. I just chucked it aside and didn't even look at it.

Hmmph! That was December. It's now the end of January and I found the seed catalogue. Not good. I'm already planning what I'm going to plant this spring.

CRIMINY!!!! I didn't even have a chance to plant my garlic this fall! Where am I going to find the time to do a garden this spring.

I think that God gives us amnesia. Kinda like when we are in labour for 23 hours, swear we will never, ever have another kid. Then give us a few months, maybe a year and WHAMOO! We've forgotten all about the pain. We want more kids. This is how the earth gets populated. The technical term is called Labour amnesia. Ok, no I made that up.

So it's the same for gardening...we tell ourselves at the end of fall that we are NOT going to plant again next spring. Then ole man winter has his grimy cold claws in you and all you just want to do it go out and stick your hands in some nice warm dirt. Once again garden amnesia strikes again!

So coming back the the topic at hand.

Where there's a seed catalogue, there's a way!

I will not go overboard...I will not go overboard....I will not go overboard!!! This is my mantra.

I plan on just sunflowers, carrots, pumpkins and beets. I mean come gotta have beets!

I will control myself, I will control myself...I will...I will....I will.....not......heh heh heh heh.

Have a Blessed day!



  1. I agree, beets and more beets, never enough beets.

  2. Go for it lady. Nothing like it and you can restrain yourself I am sure :) You are so right about always wanting what we don’t have--ain’t it the truth.


We love hearing from everyone! Please leave a comment even if it's just to say hello!
