I’m doing a better job at gardening my parents’ yard hours away than my garden across the street! Yikes! The seedlings are gone and the larger plants are begging for attention.
Strike one: The garden is in my landlord’s old yard across from me (he just bought and moved into the house beside me instead). Since planting last month, the water supply has been reconfigured and I have not figured it out.
Strike two: Spending spare time on wildlife rehab, visiting family, and outdoors to see a lot of birds… :D
Strike three, the only real strike: My roommate is job-seeking in another city, near his sister. He’s had callbacks, so this is likely a matter of time. We are month-to-month, so I hang between status quo and quick change: find a new, random roommate, or move to an apartment.
Since I don’t know what will happen, letting go of my investment and attachment the garden will make moving out of this house (which I love) less painful, if/when necessary. I suppose the flexible answer is to move a few things into pots!
Missing the ground to put down roots… one of my only frustrations. 23 months ago
