I stopped making New Year’s resolutions years ago, well, at least typical resolutions. I found that I never kept them and was continually disappointed in myself. However, I did find that when it came to my garden, I always seem to get inspired with the New Year by the arrival of all those gardening catalogs in my mail box and couldn’t wait to get back in the garden. So, I started to make gardening resolutions, and I find that they are much easier to keep. Here are a few to get you started.
Resolve to finally start a garden or learn to garden. I spent years resisting the urge to garden because I really believed I had a brown thumb. But, I never took the time to learn what it takes to grow a garden. What I discovered is that there are so many easy ways to improve your gardening success if you just take the time to learn them. Take a class, read a book, subscribe to a gardening magazine, or ask your friends that already garden. If you already garden, make a commitment to learn more, there is always something to learn.
