One of my most popular blog posts this time last year was 6 Garden Failures and What I’ll Change Next Year. I suppose I’m not the only one with garden failures!
We all have idealistic visions of how our garden will grow and develop, and we don’t prepare for the challenges and subsequent failures that arise. We might get so frustrated, in fact, that we decide to give up. I’ve been there. But I’m so glad I didn’t walk away, even in the hardest of seasons.
If your season has had its share of failures, this week’s podcast episode will spark hope. I take those same six garden failures I wrote about last year and talk about how I overcame them this year. The result? I had a much more successful garden this year because of the steps I took and the lessons I learned after last season.
Maybe you’ll identify with a few of these failures yourself, or perhaps your failures looked different. The point is, the best way to garden is to accept the failures, learn from them, and grow a better garden next year because of them (not in spite of them).
