A CURE FOR THE RELUCTANT GARDENER!
Hi, This is Donna, I truly am very Thankful To Be Here!
I have been putting off writing A Blog about Gardening for a long time.
I have been a Gardener all my Life. Sometimes I was a Reluctant Gardener.That was when my Brother Ed and I were sent out to weed the Garden when we misbehaved.
There was no “Time Out” back then, just work. I guarantee you we never did it again!
Oh well, I think I am even Thankful for that, I got to spend time with my Best Friend, My Brother.
When I started getting into Web Design, I started with my Blog http://www.createanbehappy.com.
I have written so many different articles on so many different subjects. I really consider it to be a learning experience.
The Blog was supposed to be all about Do It Yourself Projects, which never happened.
I always prayed that God would lay the Subjects on My Heart that I was to write about. So I followed His Lead.
Lately He has been Tugging at My Heart, telling Me that I needed to write about One Of My All Time Loves, Gardening. SO, here I am!
I gave a lot of consideration to what subject you might want to talk about. Thinking back I remember all the struggles I went through trying to learn how to start seeds, plant them, harvest them, and how to preserve the crops.
Because I always loved to Design things, I taught myself Landscape Design. I always wished I’d had a Mentor. Maybe I wouldn’t have made so many mistakes. That’s why I decided to write this Blog. I would try to help, maybe as a Mentor. So you would avoid all the Mistakes that I made.
There was my answer! Thank you Lord. Everything I needed help with you too as a Newbie, may need to learn too.
I am hoping that a lot of the Oldsters,(like me) will come to the rescue and share some of their Gardening know-how with all of us.
If there is something you need help with right away, let me know. I’ll get you an answer ASAP. Leave a comment, I’m sure all of my Gardening Friends who participate in this Blog will be glad to help too.
That is my goal for this Blog, is to reach out to help others, and others help others. Pretty soon it will come back around, as all good works do.
Till the Next Time, Happy Gardening, See You Soon.
