Vintage metal buckets filled with garden plans, ideas, and dreams—and yesterday, lots of wonderful donkey manure for the compost pile.
Three or four years ago, I found myself wide awake with insomnia at 3:00am on January 1st, scribbling down a ridiculously long list of goals and plans for the new year. I don't think I looked at the list again until I found it months later in a pile of paperwork clutter, and naturally hardly anything on it had been accomplished. Talk about a downer.
It's good to have goals (and I've always been a list maker), but this year I'm keeping things straightforward and simple.
These are my garden related resolutions:
1. More gardening.
2. More garden blogging.
3. More compost making—or at least
more some compost pile turning.
4. Keep my new beagle puppy out of my very unbeagleproof-fenced garden.
And last but not least, always on the list but rarely ever accomplished (some of you can guess what's coming here):
5. Keep better gardening records!
I think I can do it. Okay, maybe not the puppy part. But definitely everything else, especially since, for various reasons, I didn't do much of 1, 2, 3, and 5 in 2010. Here's to a bountiful new year!
So what are your gardening hopes, dreams, goals, and plans for 2011?
