Please tell me that it's normal to be over-whelmed by the garden when you have a baby. These last 5 years, I've been used to going out to tend to the garden whenever I want, especially after work when I could shed the work finery, get into my grubby clothes, and head outside shovel in hand. Not anymore.
That being said, I am totally stressed out by my yard. The weeds have taken over, ground cover weeds have sprung up out of nowhere and taken over entire beds, and I don't have the time (or energy) to remove them. I haven't made any pretty pots, and none of my garden objets (like a chair) has been pulled from the garage. It's either 40 degrees or 90 degrees here in Chicago, so most of the time I stare at the garden from inside, baby in my arms.
I'm almost at the point where I want to hire someone to do all this, but then I'll have to stand over them telling them, "No, that's a perennial. Don't pull that." And who has the money for this anyway? Not I, said the new stay-at-home mom!
So that's all. I just needed to get this out. If anyone comes to my yard, just tell them the Clampetts have moved in.
