Dealing with garden overwhelm

Is your garden stressing you out with everything there is to do this time of year? Here is a handy tip for dealing with garden overwhelm…

At certain times of the year, my garden seems completely overwhelming. Here in Ohio, where spring comes late, it arrives quickly, seemingly all at once. This means that after months of waiting and planning, longing for garden season, suddenly EVERYTHING needs doing at one time!

Of course, this is also the same time when weeds tend to get out of control, so along with planting (both seedlings and direct seeds outdoors), watering new baby seedlings, mulching, and laying irrigation lines, there is a neverending supply of weeds that need to be pulled. Not to mention, harvesting and picking spring crops like lettuce and other greens before they bolt with the increasing temperatures…

With all this stuff going on, it can be easy to get overwhelmed and feel like you are constantly behind and can’t get caught up with all there is to do in the garden. But gardening should be fun – not stressful!

In the video below, garden expert Stacey Murphy explains a simple tip to keeping your sanity and enjoying your garden even during the most overwhelming times:

An avid gardener since childhood, I love sharing my passion for gardening with others! I have gardened in a number of different climates and settings, from large fenced garden plots, to tiny patio and container gardens, and I firmly believe that everyone can learn to grow at least some of their own food - no matter where you live. Growing your own food can help you take control of your own health and food supply, and there has never been a better time to get started!
