How do I overcome laziness? I need to take this project seriously for few months at least. May, June is good weather for outdoor working.

If clouds block the sun in the morning, I don’t bother to get out and do something on the base camp. When it’s raining, I would make an excuse. But just blaming for cloudy weather is lame honestly. I know I’m the only person who has been doing this project. I’m at half way of the finish.

Potatoes are growing. The neighbor looked surprised at my baby potatoes when I showed leaves today. A regular guest, the old woman came by and found edible plants. When I said you could take them, she left instantly. And then few minutes later she showed up with around 15L to 20L size plastic bag and knife. She was going to take all the plants if I didn’t tell her “Please you had good enough. Leave the half for me.” LOL.

Most elders in Korea hardly know how to take care of nature. They are so greedy and short sighted when it comes to food. “Kill the fucking weeds. You lazy one! You wanna be a farmer? Then you must learn how to kill weeds. Do you understand?” I used to hear this kind of advice often last year.

The old lady’s yard is deserted land. Just big concrete parking lot and let her son spray herbicides for weed control few times a year. She should go to a food store and buy edible plants on my food garden. I bet she probably pay few dollars per a bag.

I like to watch small flowers of weeds month after month in natural condition. I can’t understand the way people appreciate beauty. Flowers in controlled environment only looks beautiful, worthy of taking care of for few months. This is so absurd but people, mostly city dwellers spend money and time on gardening when Spring starts. I gonna install fence around the base camp to block intruders. I learned a good lesson last year.

I have thousands of various follows on my food garden as is. Life is everywhere I look around in my little world.
