Same Page, Different Book

As frequently happens around our house we agree on a plan, just not it’s implementation. I refer to it as our “same page, different book mode.” Take for example our recent compost
adventures. While we were agreed that the compost needed to be spread, my thought was to move things out-of-the-way before we dumped it. Chris, on the other hand, thought we
should dump it in the general locations to get it off the driveway. So a few things got buried (flagstones, statues, plants). Of course, if it was left up to me it might be next year by the time I got around to spreading it, but at least it would’ve been done neat and tidy. The most important thing is to just do it. Get out and get dirty. You may not really be ready, but you can change your mind half way through or flip a coin as to how to get started. Just get out and plant something.

Hope to see you at our upcoming up-potting events as we get ready for another growing season and plant sale.
