Neighbours always comment on our garden saying it must take hours of work. The secret is, it doesn't if you routinely weed and tidy it.
Oh sure, the infrastructure was indeed, the hardest and most physical part. Hours of rock collecting, shaping, amending the poor soil, planting etc. But what joy it gives you looking back at the fruit of your labour.
I do everything in little bites, somewhat like April's Ten Minute Hooking Challenge and before I know it, mission accomplished.
