Gardening is not for the faint of heart. Yeah, I said it and I meant it. Gardening is hard; it is also dirty, messy, and unsure. However, it is also exciting, fulfilling, and wonderful. A lady by the name of May Sarton once said, “A garden is always a series of losses set against a few triumphs, like life itself.” And indeed, it is. We plant in the spring and hope for a good harvest in the fall. Seed coats are broken, and life begins to show itself in the form of little green leaves and stems almost as soon as they are planted. However, if the temperature is not quite right or the moisture level is too far off, things can go horribly awry.
