Take the garden pledge!!!


Happy new year!!! I hope that everyone had a wonderful holiday season and I pray that 2011 will be a prosperous one for us all.

I was thinking about what I could blog about and didn't want to talk about the seed catalogs that have been dropping through my mail slot every day (even though I LOVE getting them!).

So I started to think what I could write about. I thought about the Grow It Eat It initiative and the classes that I have taught on vegetable gardening. I remember a lot of people saying "I'm going to start a garden next year" and then it hit me. What would happen if everyone who reads this helped just one person plant a garden--whatever the size--this year? And then what would happen if the person you helped, helped someone else? The possibilities are endless!

So here's my challenge. I even made my own graphic for it! My personal pledge this year is to help at least one person start a garden. It can be just a few plants in containers, a small raised bed, or a nice-sized garden (whatever that may be).

There's no place to sign up, it's just a personal pledge and I'd love to hear from everyone when they've accomplished their goal! I have two people in mind already that have been saying they are going to plant a garden for at least three years.

Is there anyone out there willing to take this pledge with me? I think it's going to be lots of fun!

So here's to 2011 and greener gardens for all!

Until next time....happy garden thoughts!
