It is funny how dogmatic and also pragmatic gardeners often are, it drives me nuts. WHat I mean by that is when you talk to gardeners they always know the "right" way to do something, and in their minds it has to be done that way or else it will fail and won't be right. We probably should be the least dogmatic and pragmatic out of all professions as the more we know and the more experienced we become we should realize that there is more we don't know than we do know. There is nothing set in stone, and there are many ways to accomplish our goals if we ask ourselves questions. Like... Why do I have to do it that way?
What is the purpose of doing it that way?
What are the results of doing it that way?
Could we achieve the same result with another way?
Yet we insist on carving out all these rules and regulations and laws for doing what we do. When much of it is unneccesary.
We need to think about what we are doing and why we are doing it, and that means we have to stick our necks out and try things that others aren't trying. Do things that others aren't doing. And when they fail which they often do, we have to be OK with it. We are all so different and we all see things a bit differently and come from different climates around the world. We also have different God given gifts, some of you are scientific and mathematical others are artistic and creative. Both types are needed in furthering this sport.
