Having a garden is a lot of work.  There are weeds to pull, soil to amend, seeds to plant, weeds to pull, watering, more weeds to pull, plants to fertilize, and even more weeds to pull.


Whew its been a long day, I did not know that there was so much work to starting a garden.



And then after all of that work you have to wait for your plants to grow.


Hey what I happened, I planted the seeds yesterday and nothing is there?


Between all the delays and work involved it is easy to wonder if having a garden is worth it. Then one day you wake up and look outside and low and behold a miracle has occurred and  your bleak yard has been transformed into a thing of beauty and suddenly it all becomes worthwhile.


What a difference! It was worth all that work after all.
