With 2011 right around the corner, We have spent some time reflecting upon the events of 2010. This always leads us to making some resolutions for the new year to come. As yardsteaders, we tend to mark time by seasons and we began thinking of resolutions to match the seasons. We didn't want to just go with the typical resolution of "plant more next year". All the vegetables we plant each year such as zuchinni, heirloom tomatoes, squash, pumpkins, onions, garlic and so on were all popular in my kitchen this year, and we intend to devote more space to these crops next spring. But to be honest, we haven't planned well in years past and we don't have something planted in our garden through each season. I think in Florida with our climate and mild winters, this is probably almost gardening criminal. So our New Year's gardening resolution? Plan, Plan, Plan a four-season garden and make more space in the garden to grow more unusual varieties of heirloom vegetables and fruit!
The Yardstead wishes you much Happiness, Health, and Prosperity in the New Year. As always Happy Yardsteading to you and your family in 2011!
