Welcome 2021!

I usually do a post about my “gardening resolutions” for the new year but this year just having survived 2020 may be all that I need to say–and be extremely grateful for.

It’s a little difficult to know quite what to decide about this year’s garden. I suspect that this gardening year will be much like last, with restrictions and limitations still in place because of the pandemic. So perhaps I will resolve the following:

I have much to focus on without leaving my property. I need to attend more to maintenance;

Any new projects and planting that I do, I will attempt to make as few trips as possible (good practice even during normal times);

And I will continue to reduce my containers and group them to conserve water. Last year, we had quite a drought. Fortunately, I had already begun this practice, but I still spent too much time watering containers. It’s not fun. Some of those are my house plants and it’s still easier to water those with a hose than indoors with watering cans–but still.

So let us look forward to better things in 2021. Here’s to a happy, healthy new year and a fabulous garden!
