Well, even the greatest hobbies (gardening and cooking are my favorites) have portions that are still much less fun than the others. I'm hoping that we can get a thread of helpful hints for folks with those mundane details that can be so tedious at times.
So, what is everyone's least favorite activity/activities associated with gardening?
And, what advice can folks give regarding those activities?
My personal least favorite activities are just starting right now: waiting for seeds to germinate.
I hate the worry that I did something wrong with them as they are germinating before they sprout! Is the mix too wet, too dry? Is the temperature too hot, too cold? Did I plant them too deep, too shallow?
The hardest part for me is with plants that take the longest to germinate: parsley, peppers, etc. The ones that pop up in a few days aren't so bad. Coles, lettuces, etc.
Any help with the neurosis? Or anyone need help with other "chores" associated with gardening?
