gardening challenges

There are many challenges of gardening of course- drought, flood, weeds, pests etc but some challenges are perhaps a little weirder.

Look at this picture:



These are not weeds. They are self sown sunflower, zucchini, tomato, coriander and tomatillo seedlings. There is no way I can possibly grow them all- there'd be no room for anything else and no way we could possibly use them all and yet I have such trouble plowing them in.

It seems such a waste! And so rude to the little battlers who grew this far all on their own and with none of the love and support I give their brethren who had the luck to be born in the right place and from a consciously sown seed. 


I need to close my eyes as I till them. 

But that creates its own challenges!
