Nerdin Gardens: MANtaining, MANaging and MANual Labor

 

Every new growing season brings a great share of excitement in awe of nature's ways plus challenges to be met in the back yard garden. Warm temperatures, nutrient rich soil, adequate sunshine, weeding by hand and plentiful water creates an optimum growth environment.

 

 

My husband Michael has a green thumb. He enjoys MANtaining the plant material and possesses the ability to encourage favorable outcomes while also creating beautiful, relaxing spaces for everyone's enjoyment.

 

 

Nurturing a home garden is akin to MANaging a business.  All systems must be in place, a strong work ethic is required plus proper planning, trouble shooting with a strong foundation in gardening knowledge.  Consistency with follow through is ultra-important for favorable outcomes. 

 

 

The list of fruits, vegetables and herbs is diverse, from Roma, cherry, heirloom, beef-eaters and grape tomatoes to zucchini, squash, melons to a variety of peppers, cucumbers, strawberries, grapes and Muscadines. Oregano, rosemary, basil, dill weed, sage and thyme grows nicely in pots.

 

 

WoMAN! There is a lot of MANual labor involved in MANtaining a garden. Plant the seeds, do the necessary work and enjoy the results!

Stuff green peppers or Wanda, green peppers in a salad, wait pepper on pizza.  So many things to use them in.

Yes, all three are very appealing Will Hamm and will be using them in a salad for dinner tonight. If we lived closer, you and the Mrs. would be on the delivery list!

I love seeing photos of, and reading about, your garden! I planted my first three summers ago and realized how enjoyable it is to have fresh vegetables. Truly a labor of love!

That certainly looks like a lot of work and work that I would not be wanting to do myself, haha.  You both do such a great job maintaining your beautiful gardens!

After harvesting Hollyhock seeds this week for future planting, the garden will be weeded. No MANsplaining needed here Kathy Streib! LOL!

Gardening is an enjoyable undertaking that we do together. You might say, it's an all natural give and take and agree, it's most definitely a labor of love, Kat Palmiotti!

Gardening is rewarding for us, Brian England, while others are happy to peruse the vegetable isles in the store or at a Farmer's Market!
