Just Two Things Garden Maintenance
Report From PIA – June 28
My day was hectic crazy, mostly out of the garden. More than the usual mish-mash, and a mix of many aspects of life. You don’t want the details, trust me. But at one point in the day I knew that I really wanted to do something in the garden… garden tour in two days and all of that. So I went into the fragrance garden with a knife.
For the past month I’ve thought that there were too many Valeriana officinalis (garden heliotrope) and that the Eupatorium perfoliatum (boneset) were twice the size I wanted them to be. Time to hack back the extra Valieriana and trim back the Eupatorium. It took me about 10 minutes, not a huge amount of gardening, but I at least felt like I’d done something to improve the beds.
If I did just two things in the garden every day, it might not totally maintain them at peak perfection, but over time a great deal of work would get done.
If we do just two things to move ourselves, or our communities or the world forward every day, how would the world be different?
