Pounds of Promises

Mae West once said, “An ounce of performance is worth pounds of promises.” That’s why you should never make promises you can’t keep, especially when it comes to the garden. If you want low-maintenance, consider asphalt. And don’t be fooled by asphalt because even that requires maintenance.

But if you truly desire beautiful flower gardens, green lawn, or even just a few tomatoes in a veggie patch, it all requires an ounce of performance from someone. Don’t be fooled by pounds of promises. A low-maintenance garden is like one of those fad diets; short-lived. Because eventually, someone needs to perform each year, so put in that ounce of garden boost and you can get back a lot more than pounds of promises!
