As Agnes Repplier reminds us, “A kitten is chiefly remarkable for rushing about like mad at nothing whatever, and generally stopping before it gets there.” That’s great advice for the anxious gardener, too. Let’s not rush through the growing season and then, right when it matters, kick back and relax. Here’s an example. A touch of frost hit our garden last night; not enough to cause crop damage or hurt any tender buds but it’s a subtle reminder to protect and be patient with those more delicate plant materials. Wait an extra week or two (depending on your location) before setting out your annuals, certain veggies and some of your indoor plants. In the meantime, enjoy what is blossoming inside and out. Hold tight on planting your delicates and keep pampering those houseplants that carried us through the dormant season. Don’t rush about like mad at nothing! Happy Friday.
