Motivation is a slippery thing

Motivation = the condition of being eager to act or work: the condition of being motivated.

I am simply not motivated to do what I need to do in the garden right now. It is the first time in all these years that I have 4 veggie beds standing fallow.

Fallow in itself is not a problem, it is good for the land to rest, however I had planned a rest for the ground next year.

I have been asking myself why I am not motivated to get my hands dirty, sow the seed I need to sow and then watch and wait with the eager anticipation that I know I feel when the first heads of the plants peep above the soil.

We all know it is cold at the moment, but I have gardened in the cold many many times and loved it so this is not the reason.

My paper plans are done, seeds bought, newspaper pots it not as if there is any reason to not just do it!

I have never struggled with procrastination, yet here I sit and write about doing something in stead of actually doing it! Go figure????

Lined up on my dining room table is everything that I need to get my first spring seedlings going...will I find the motivation to do it today?

So, did you?

I hope you get super inspired to get gardening again, Aunty Wendy!

I felt exactly like that a few months ago...:(

I'm so glad spring is just around the corner:)

Much love,
