Funny-true post. Can't tell you how many times I've started one thing only to either have to do ten things first or I get completely sidetracked and tackle an entirely different project. But isn't that why we love to garden? Never gets old. Never gets done, either.

Glad you got the snow peas finally planted, though. Hilarious!

BEFORE & AFTER

I know exactly what you are speaking of: A zillion "things to-be-done" and when I finally get all hyped up to tackle same, it's like a little "dyslexia" crowds in, and I kind of go like a pinball machine, bouncing from one task to another. True! However, in three hours today, I think I accomplished something in only 3 Deg.C all day.
BEFORE:

Thumb of 2018-04-02/fwmosher/9d5298

I think a deer tried to get out, and the fence post immediately on the left, is broken off at the base, and just "jury-rigged" as you see it. So anyway, got all my tools together (or so I thought) an unhooked everything, and dug up the old fence post. Put in a new one, then a new sheet of privacy screen, secured it all, and took a "completed" picture of it.

Now I still have to lop the top of the new post off with my chainsaw, but all in all, not a bad three hours work! (Note: I am not a cabinet maker-carpentry "bungler" would be a better description!) Anyway, I was all bundledup with warm clothes, and in spite of thinking I had assembled all the tools necessary, I still had to go back to my "man cave" in the basement for more tools, many times, and a couple of times, for a little Chardonnay! LOL. And you know what, I saw signs of new growth everywhere down there, on almost everything, and so wanted to do a little real "gardening", but first things first! Cheers!

I am so glad I'm not alone! HA! Dyslexia in the garden. I will have to remember that! And yes, "Never gets old. Never gets done." I think the fence looks great! And from this day forward, a bottle of chardonnay will be in my garden tool bucket....great idea Thumbs up
The end is nothing, the journey is all.
