Okay-----get ready------this is ground breaking stuff here. This is my first ever---I mean ever in my whole 47 year long life----blog. My computer programming, website developing, computer building, web-master son will be so proud!!!
So, please bear with me as I become accustomed to this whole thing. I always wanted to be a writer, so perhaps this is the beginning!
It is early morning and the leaves are pretty much off the trees here in upstate NY. The beech and the oak are of course holding on to many of their brown beauties, waiting to drop those so I have something to clean out in the spring. I say that like I actually clear leaves out in the fall!!
Since I have my own gardening business, everyone else's gardens come first, and if there is any left over time or energy, my poor, patient beds get some attention. Although, I must admit, even though I do love my job, there is nothing like working in my own beds and having the freedom to rip out, transplant, and cut back whatever and whenever the mood strikes. And I will do all of that regardless of whether or not it is the right time or season. My very good friend Judy used to say, "Man, your plants must see you coming and yell 'Hold on to your roots--she's coming!!' "
But, I really believe that the plants feel your energy, and as long as I have my positive energy going, I can do almost anything with them and they respond well. My customers laugh at me when I tell them that they have to stop giving off their negative energy with their "I can never get that to grow in my garden" remarks!
Well, I am off this cold morning to put more gardens to bed for the season. I am hoping to be inspired as to what I can do for employment for the winter months - can't do another winter without a major income. I know there is an idea floating around in my head for winter gardening---I just can't get it to come to the front yet!! Today may be the day!
