    Oh Boy, I just read my list of things to accomplish.  I did find a parting job which has turned into more of a full time job so think I am in trouble with a capital T.  I do have all the plants started for the new annual bed but nothing planted yet.  Not on my list was to get a strawberry bed going and that is done and going quite nicely.  Also have lots of perennial started for the other new beds I want to make and the one that I need to redo but the growing season is just starting here so there is hope.

    Thanks for the update, Wilderness! There’s plenty of gardening season left… can’t wait to see what you accomplish!

    Who else has been busy keeping their resolutions? :)

    Congratulation on keeping the first part of your 2014 Garden Resolution Jill. Sounds pretty nice to start a garden so early in the year, especially when the NYGR is still fresh in your mind.

    My garden designs/plans took a slight detour. I ended up planting only 2 Heirloom tomatoes b/c I found 3 seeds for cucumbers & 3  seeds for Cherry tomato plants saved from a few years ago & wanted to give them a whirl. Went ahead & planted all 6 seeds & now I have 5 more vegetable plants growing; one of the cucumber plants got zapped from a cold snap.

    So, I did not stick to my Garden Resolution but I am happy with the garden so far & looking forward to hearing about/seeing everyone else’s NYGR.

    Jill, I feel you deserve the strawberry plant/s of your choice for sticking to your     Garden Resolution so well, good job.

    Well, plans are not moving along as fast as I had hoped.  There is no new bed in the fairy garden yet but the bridge to it is built and in place.  Not sure that counts since I didn’t mention it in the first post but it was on the to do list.

    So far I am on track.  I gave away lots of perennials this Spring.  I sent many with Kathy…and on Memorial day weekend, I gave a couple a pickup load of phlox.  I have transplanted some to behind my shop….and a few I have tossed away.

    My containers are doing good so far.  I tried some new plants, but incorporated them with the reliable plants I knew did well in containers.  I will share pics in a few weeks.  Charlene

    I sure didn’t get mine done last year and probably won’t again this year either:(  I have too many things that need attention again so much for resolutions:(

    Guess I done pretty well. I was going to attempt to have tomatoes up to frost this year by starting new plants every 3 weeks or so.  I set the last of my tomatoes out in the garden in  early July and I did have tomatoes up till about a week before frost so thats much better than in past years. And yes those new determinate tomatoes I was going to start were very good tomatoes and I plan on planting more of them this spring.

    On looking back at the old post I see we even had anonymous posting. Anyone remember anonymous lol
