Up To The Minute Gardening Marilyn’s Way

I always get excited the day I plant my vegetable garden.  So much hope and anticipation is formed.  How will my garden be this year?

I have to say since I reclaimed gardening, I have been very fortunate with having successful gardens the past three years.

What will my 4th year back into gardening be like?  Stick around.  I plan to keep you updated to the miracle of planting a seed that grows into a plant to harvesting the vegetables at the end of gardening season.

It really is a ‘Circle Of Life’.  I think that is why I am so fascinated by it.  Without further ado, I am headed out to the garden!

I was out there for 45 minutes and it is hot!  It is 89 degrees.  Time for a different game plan.

Luckily I know of a different way to get the garden in without getting heat stroke.  It is something I take from Marilyn’s Way Dance Till You FLY! System.  It is called 15ers or 15 minute spurts of doing something and then a 15 minute break.  Now you wouldn’t think one could get very much done doing it that way.  For me having fibromyalgia and a chance of heat exhaustion I have no choice.

Three years ago when I decided to take up gardening again after being ill for 5 years I knew if I wanted to do it I was going to have to come up with  a plan my way.  That is how the name Marilyn’s Way came to be.

I wasn’t going to be able to do it like most gardeners do.  Yet, I wasn’t ready to give it up.  I wanted to be outdoors in the summer after spending all winter cooped up.  I was determined.  Instead I have learned to do a little at a time and then come back into my home to take a break and do one of my nine habits I do each day to keep my home from getting cluttered and disorganized.

I am cooled off and hydrated with Powerade Zero.  Off to the garden I go again.  I want to stay out there for 30 minutes but if it is only 15 minutes I can handle I will do it that way.  I have the garden plan in my head so now I am ready to start planting.

Stay tuned.  Tomorrow I will show you what I get done.  Happy Gardening!

Will you be gardening this year?  I would love to know how you do it your way!

  1. Marilyn,
    this is a great post. I used to do gardening, but those flies would bite the heck out me! It was a lot of work, but very rewarding and I think taking those breaks are really important! I like how you write too, your personality comes across.. it’s authentic. Love it!!!
