When I get motivated, I can move a mountain.  I feel so confident in my ability that I won’t let anyone put me down or listen to that voice in my head that tells me what I want to achieve is impossible.

Do you ever feel like that?

Sometimes dreams get shelved whilst other things take priority.  My garden has been a bit like this during July and August.  I loved having to spend time sowing and tending to my little plants.

Recently, whilst watering and keeping everything in check has taken time, it’s not been the same.

I have become less motivated whilst waiting for things to grow and ripen.

Today however, we took delivery of a new frame that I am going to grown next years strawberries in.

The success of the strawberries has motivated me to give them top priority.  I have the most beautiful ‘ivory heritage colour ’ frame 8’ x 4’ on a 3 tier raised bed from Access Garden Products.  I have filled it with compost and manure and top soil all mixed together to help them get their feet into some ‘good stuff’ to help them on their way.

I am going to plant 3 varieties of strawberry, early, main and late crop.

Now I’m motivated to get things looking nice, I felt the urge to change all the beds in the house, throw out old paperwork no longer needed and have a general tidy up!  Blimey… time to have a sit down and a cup of tea!

It’s amazing how our attitude can change with a little positive thinking.  I find, whenever I give myself ‘a check up from the neck up’ I feel better inside!
