When I say I'm a perfectionist I merely mean that for some reason my internal wiring has me approaching things from an "I have to get it right the first time!" angle, and the bugger is that even when I know there's no "right," the feeling persists. It's nothing rational or even really discardable - I just have to learn to work with it. I'm fine with non-supermarket veggies - in fact I prefer them - and don't expect that my garden's going to look perfect or be super productive right away. I just want to grow some stuff. The perfectionism trips me up mainly right at the beginning, when I'm like, "Hey, there's a way I should be starting out with these beds and I have no idea what it is and I'm not going to try *anything* until I know *the right way to do it!" (i.e. how would a permie do it?) *That's* what I'm trying to bypass - instead of psyching myself out, I thought, why not get some basic advice and just proceed?
