I look forward to connecting with you in 2010!

Of course with the New Year, we have to have a few New Year’s Resolutions, right? Here are my vegetable garden New Year’s Resolutions for 2010:

  • I want to grow five vegetables this year that I have never grown before (or had little success growing before). I haven’t made up my mind what yet, but I’m working on it!
  • I want to volunteer more at my local community gardens, assisting however I can with others’ vegetable gardens.
  • I want to volunteer more at the Rescue Mission’s Garden for the Homeless Program.
  • I want to give at least 30% of my harvest to the Peninsula Food Bank.
  • I want to do a better job this year of saving seeds and participant in seed exchanges.

I would love to hear your gardening New Year’s Resolutions for 2010!!

Once again, I want to wish everyone a Happy, Healthy, and Prosperous 2010! May you have a very blessed year!

  1. it's not really a recent purchase, but I do love my garden claw I received as a gift several years ago. I use it all the time to break up the ground in smaller areas I'm working in. Sometimes the ground gets compacted after alot of watering and, even though I amend my soil with compost each season, we have alot of red clay in our soils, so I really depend on my garden claw to break things up through the summer.

  2. I'm trying to grow vertically this year, I found two metal arbors at the end of the season at Lowe's last year for 20 bucks each.  I've attached some wire hardware cloth to them (I think that's what it's called) for the cukes and squash to grab hold to as they grow upwards.

  3. I am working on building a compost 3 bin system for my farm poo and table scraps. once finished I will have compost to spare.:)

    I love growing cucumber vertically! Have an old metal arbor too, and they thrive so much better than growing on the ground.  I think the air circulation is better, plus the slugs can't get into the fruit 'cause it's not laying on the ground.

  5. PVC piping and netting for a garden trellis. Shannon, I'm jealous.  I've been looking for some cheap arbors to use too!

  6. Gardening gloves- can't work without them

  7. I built a potting bench from old palettes, great having a designated area!

  8. a sprinkler with a timer still want a sprinkler with a motion sensor on it to go off when there is nocternal movement in the garden such as deer.

  9. What is the most recent thing you've purchased to help make it easier to manage your garden? (or just any purchase really)

    Curious to see what people are excited aboutLast year I planted my tomatoes in rows (160 ft )& watered with 2 in. lay flat hose as the main line & ran 3/4 in drip tape off the main line . With the growth of the tomatoes & the drip tape it was diffcult to feritilze the plants.This year. I bought liquid feritilzer in 5 gallon buckets, a siphion valve,couple little ball valves,3ft tubing. Now when watering ,I can feritilze the plants. How Sweet It Is.

  10. I finally found rail road ties for my organic garden beds I construct for a descent price! I was very happy haha. It reduced my cost immensely and rail road ties are the best for my mushroom compost organic gardens. I do everything by hand beside tilling every now and then. Gardening keeps me healthy all these gadgets and tools eliminate the effort necessary to use your body to stay healthy in my opinion. Natural way is the best way every time. 😉
