More than just emerging cucumber seedlings, a new opportunity for improvement. 40% of first year gardeners give up, with one of the major reasons being failing to grow a "successful" garden. Natural disasters occur, plants die, but just like anything in life worth pursuing, it takes hard work and dedication to achieve your goals. I'm not going to let the most recent hurricane wiping out so many of my plants discourage me, because gardening has become such an integral part of what makes me happy. In fact I've been inspired to sow all the seeds I've hoarded in my seed box and frankly I've never been more excited about the potential of my garden.
