Looking Ahead--Gardening Goals

Dec 2010--Birdbath through Crepe Myrtles--Elph

I would look back over 2010 like most other bloggists, but I am an optimist at heart.  What has happened has happened, and I have probably already learned several lessons from it.  As for the great things of 2010--they are stored in my heart. So now I press onto the future. 

Here are a few goals Pat and I have talked about for the yard/garden this coming year.  Of course, one thing I will endeavor to do is help out more.  This means that all of my house cleaning, hobbies, and interestes will need to be managed much better in order to help Pat outside in the yard.  I think I am finally in a place in my life where I know I can do what I want, when I want to do it!! 

So, that was a little sappy.  Onwards to the point of this post:  Looking Ahead.  A few goals for the yard for 2011 are--
    Frosty Morning--Dec 2010--Taken w/Nikon D3100!!
  • Make a large vegetable garden in the front yard where there is full sun
  • Cut down at least 4 trees and reorganize wood pile
  • Tidy all bulb gardens
  • Cindy wants to re-work Turk's Cap garden
  • Replace and add more salvias
  • Add more lovely herbs to the herb garden
  • Read Herb Gardening book and use herbs for soaps, oils, and such
  • Get a few Guineas
In sharing the list with Pat, his only comment was:  That's a lot.  Well, yes it is.  But in my mind if I don't set several goals, nothing will get accomplished.  If I have a banquet of goals, surely one or two will be tackled in 2011!  See--I am an optimist--a very cunning one! 


  1. I like the Guineas. We didn't have them when I was growing up, but many other people did and they were always fun to watch and quite unique, but from what I remember they screech a lot. I will monitor all the other stuff, but the Guineas caught my eye. The Nonninator

  2. Thanks for popping by my blog, I'm glad you enjoy it. Your list of projects for 2011 made me feel quite tired!!

  3. Good luck with meeting your goals! BTW.. we have Guineas that live down the street from us and are always in our yard.
