Yes... a question to consider now that the Holidays are passing by and the New Year is soon to arrive. In today's economy we need to think about growing for health and for necessity. Did you know you could grow enough food for yourself in a container? Did you know you can find peace of mine growing some grass ( I am talking the kind you walk in!) in a favorite container? I practice what I preach.... I find peace in my dirt and I enjoy feeding family and friends with the treasures I grow each year. My goal today is to inspire you with those green ideas. I would like to encourage you to start THINKING now about about what you can grow in 2010.
New Year's Garden Resolutions 2010
Look beyond the weeds and find the blooms in everything you do. Words to live by.... if you can do this it will make just about every situation in your life 'smell like roses'.
In the image above I am holding a 'prize' heirloom Russian plum that was new to the BGgarden.com this planting season.
I look forward to sharing my 'square foot' gardening adventures after putting in two raised 4'x4' beds right outside my 10'x12' greenhouse. We completed this stage of the 'Greenhouse Project in late October. I can't wait to share early spring planting ideas and the progress of stage 2 of this project. I am eager to use the supplies I purchased in the fall for the additional raised beds for perennials and other edible vegetation.
Learning and Share as we go in the Home Greenhouse. Check out my link to the right titled 'Bren's Greenhouse to see how it all began. In the short three months I have been using the greenhouse. we have learned SO MUCH! I am super excited to start some new seeds this week as we welcome the new year and share them as they grow with you! Are you INSPIRED to start a house of your own yet? A group of local growers who recently toured my greenhouse project have already begun plans for their own greenhouse projects. It is always wonderful to hear the stories of how we can INSPIRE one another to enjoy and live GREEN! This is one of the true blessings in SHARING GREEN!
Expanding the ART of garden from my studies in new photography techniques that will inspire to look behind the color of the soft pedals.
Please be sure to share your goals as I did after being inspired by : Garden Variety facebook posting asking to share Garden Resolutions for 2010. I know Ms.Reimer would love to hear from you!
