Day 28: The 30 Day Gardening Challenge is Almost Over!

It’s hard to believe that this 30 Day Gardening Challenge has gone by pretty quickly.

Well, we have two days to go, but I’ve covered a lot of ground.

And I’ve learned some valuable gardening lessons over almost 30 days of daily gardening chores.

For one, “The Hillside” (as I refer to the hillside behind my house that is totally wild like a tropical jungle) is going to take much more time. I should hire some professional gardeners to take over, but… I’m more concerned about using that money toward more substantial goals, like creating a concrete walkway with some steps.

But yes, that hillside is going to take a long time and I have to be committed to continuing the work.

Much of the work involves:

  • 1. Chopping down dead trees (that can be used for fire wood).
  • 2. Pruning and shaping the tress and shrubs.
  • 3. Conditioning the soil.
  • 4. Planting new trees and shrubs.

It took a lot of work to bring the garden back to good form.

It’s going to take much more time and effort to continue on. But, I’m dedicated to working a little bit each day.

Still, I’ve completed a lot in almost 30 days of staying focused on improving and renewing the garden.
