Not everyone understands gardeners. For some of us it would fair to call our condition – Gardening Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. For those of us who live in the northern lattitudes, winter is the season you are trapped inside your home dreaming of warmer days and doing your best to keep your house plants healthy. The rest of the year you are outside preparing the garden, working in the garden or getting the garden ready for winter.
If you are not a gardener, chances are that you don’t get it. I have had friends ask me if I actually save money by growing vegetables. Huh? That’s not the point for me. Along with vegetable gardens we have blueberry and raspberry patches and some incredible shade gardens. We are lucky to have an extensive perennial garden too. The plants bloom in waves over the spring, summer and fall. Each wave of blooms bring immeasurable joy and satisfaction It is a feeling that is hard to explain to someone who doesn’t like to get their hands dirty.
I found this video that is a short glimpse into the world of “Gardening Obsessive Compulsive Disorder”. I hope you enjoy it!
