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