DIY Backyard Farm Edible Garden Planning Guide – Tip #8

Tip #8 from my book is so simple to understand. However, even the most seasoned edible gardeners (me included) have difficulty following it.

Tip #8 – Relax, have fun, and do not expect perfection!

Seems simple enough right? It is, as long as you do not lose focus of it. Every time I plan a garden, shop at my local garden center, or plant seeds I remind myself of this lesson. Ditto for the times when one of the kids pick something too soon or step on a delicate, young plant.

Mother Nature deals the garden a blow? No problem…there is nothing I can do to control Mother Nature.

The bottom line is simple. Anytime you feel stressed about your edible garden take a time out and look at tip #8. Are you having fun yet?
