I was just wondering.
It is January, and until the last week, it was weather to garden in more than weather to plan with, and that was rather strange. We were out digging postholes for the fence to corral the new dog. but now that real January weather has settled in, i.e. freezing temperatures, snow, ice, wind, and other inclement conditions, I have started to plan. Then was wondering what the general consensus is for gardening in 2012. Does the economy still influence us? Our generational values or stage of life?
For me, it is my age and plans for the year that are the main guidelines for my priorities. I’ll need to account for dogs, vacation plans, and a few other factors. I began more food gardening the last two years, an those plans haven’t gone so well. Whether I lost my touch, or it was the weather is still not certain in my mind. For the first time in a long time I will not be going out of state for periods during the first part of the garden season- that is bound to make a (good) difference!
How about you …out there in blogger reader land?
And are we going to journal online, in a book, with art or charts or what? Just wondering, still. Ohyes, and is anyone going to the Columbus Garden Show this year?
