I was having a discussion today about qualities needed to become a good cook. And it made me wonder what the the qualities are that are needed to become a good gardener.
What do you think.

If gardening is a chore, you won't stay with it or enjoy it. You also need to be able to appreciate the little things, like watching a bumblebee go from flower to flower, or the way light lands on a certain plant, or when a bird makes a nest in a tree you planted.
Yeah, definitely. there were times i wanted to give up when i was having major bug problems, but I'm glad i stuck it out.mtmickey wrote:perseverance
Acceptance!SWMOgardens wrote:You must realize you can't beat the weather. There will be late spring freezes or frosts, hail storms, floods, droughts, and wet winters. You can't beat nature. Rabbits, deer, slugs, japanese beetles, cut worms and pests are going to visit your garden. You can simply make your garden the nicest place you can, enjoy it and TRY not to worry about things you can not control.
