Insane Garden Report

I have come to the conclusion that my garden plans are bigger than my (oh I don't know pick one) strength, ability, desire, time, want or need. I am certifiably insane. That's right you heard it here first, I am admitting being in over my head.
That or the daunting task of planting the 1500 plants I started from seed has got me running scared. (like Han Solo getting chased by stormtroopers only they are green and NOT shooting lasers at me) I have so much to do that I spend most of any free time trying to decide what to do next or at all.

What possessed me to buy 500 onion plants...and then plant 100 leeks from seed just to see if I could get them to grow.
What possessed me to plant about 100 neon green cauliflower cousins?
Why did I buy enough peas to plant 1/4 mile row, not that I have the room mind you, which makes this all the more crazy
Are we really going to eat all that Thai basil I just had to have?

WHY
WHY???
WHY????????????????

I want to grow as much of our own food as possible but right now I am totally overwhelmed...can you tell?


Peace and Love,

  3. HOW many plants? I'm thinking you need some help there. And possibly a few margaritas! Good luck... and I'd so happily share some of your bounty in my garden that needs to be weeded and tilled badly so I can plant, but ummm not nearly close enough ;)

    Have fun with it! And congrats on that green thumb!
