I’ve always wanted a garden. I don’t know why. I think I like the idea of growing something from scratch and making it into something you eat. It seems so…simple…so Nebraska. I *finally* have my garden. I’ve always believed that it takes a village to raise a Marianne. A few weeks back my roommate/therapist/bestie/caretaker Jessica sent a text stating I needed to come home as we had a garden to plant.
Say what?!? I excitedly returned home to plant my very first garden. The excitement waned a bit when I realized that we had to till the dirt…and the dirt had worms.
Here are some other lessons I learned about gardening.
- When dirt has worms it means you have good dirt (who knew).
- Crack an egg and put it in the hole where you are going to plant tomatoes. I have absolutely no idea what this does, but Jessica read it on Pinterest so it must do something.
- Rabbits eat cucumber plants.
- Gardens take lots of watering. Like you have to water every day. They are kind of like pets in that sense.
