This Spring, mariner planned to move his vegetable garden to another spot in the backyard. He reasoned that March would have enough good days to build new raised beds and fix several maintenance issues that make things easier, then in April seed pots could be started under grow lights, and finally, spring planting would begin in late April, early May.
One bed of four has been built; improved soil is not yet added; constant interruptions for nuisance maintenance issues have interfered – both outside and in the home; March offered nothing but constant cold rain; in April property maintenance became the primary chore with cutting lawns, weeding, and maintaining a spiff front yard for the neighborhood to see.
Well, maybe tomorrow I’ll get to it. The reader knows as well as mariner that tomorrow never comes. (1) mariner walks like Mr. Tudball (2) physical ability requires changing the type of work frequently – a real boon for people with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). (3) four days of rain. (5) Task A must be done before starting task B which must be done before starting task C which must be done before starting task A.
It is a project that is more than mariner can handle using a time clock for scheduling. Like mariner tells his friends, he works eight hours a day but it takes him three days to do it. Still, it beats rotting away watching streaming television. Maybe tomorrow I’ll watch streaming television . . . .
