Make sure you always remember to enjoy your lovely garden!

Ahhh—another fifth week!

Typically, there are no meetings and few events in the fifth week. If we organize our recurring to-do lists by the first and third week, or by the second and fourth (which I highly recommend), we should not have much on our lists this week, either!

So, what do we do with this week of freedom? I highly recommend giving yourself permission to get out and enjoy your garden!

That’s it! STOP reading this and GO OUTSIDE, before it gets too hot! Get!
