Most of us are amateurs when it comes to anything that has nothing to do with our full time job. It stands to reason.

However, even if we spend hours each day doing something, we might not be very professional about it. So, we could remain amateurs. This stands to reason too.

AK is an amateur this and an amateur that in retirement.

I do the things I enjoy but I am not necessarily good at them.

It is about having fun and not making a living.

So, I am not going to set professional targets or high standards. Just thinking about doing this is stressful.

Naturally, this is how I treat gardening as a past time too. For an amateur gardener, I think I have done OK.

To be honest, it is probably because I have mostly chosen plants which are easier to grow.

Yes, AK is a lazy fellow and always likes options which have lesser resistance…
