A Small Gardening Victory

 It turns out that I'm not a complete gardening moron! Yay!

Last night, my friend Jenn, who is much further along in her gardening life journey, nixed many of my gardening fears and inadequacies.

For several weeks now, a few of my plants have been mocking me, turning yellow and wilting. I immediately had thoughts of self-doubt and shame: I don't know what I'm doing.

Turns out that these plants are not dying because I've done something wrong, but simply because they've lived their life and it's time to dig them up and replant! Yay! It's not my fault!

Tonight we will be feasting on our harvest :) And maybe, eventually, like twenty years from now, with lots more experience and advice from gardening gurus like Jenn, I will finally sort of know what I'm doing.


  1. Rebecca! You are about as far from "moron" as it gets! I loved your garden! And I love your photo and plans to enjoy the fruits of your labor! Well done, Friend.

  2. Thanks for the encouragement, but I am pretty excited to benefit from your wisdom :)


Thank you for taking the time to comment on Mamma Vintage! I love to hear your thoughts and experiences.
