First Edition, Chapter 1: The 3 Season Garden (goal #10)


Hello Friends, Family and Neighbors-

I am starting something new.  Regular progress posts, focusing on my 2010 goals.  This will:

  1. keep me honest...
  2. remind me of what they are ;D
  3. keep me focused...
And, maybe InSpire...  Perhaps, HelP others (with their goals).  And definitely PUsH me to accomplish mine.

This will also provide a format, a clearer path, as to what this blog is all about.  Previously, other than my monthly marathon updates, I've never had a plan about where this was all going...  And now I do.

So here it goes:

Goal #10.  The 3 Season Garden.

 these little seedlings will go

out into these planters...

Next step:

  1. Soil (Obviously) - Is there such a thing as organic soil?
  2. Warmer weather (Hopefully Soon) - buy thermal blanket so I don't have to wait -
  3. Transplant seedlings
  4. Order Heirloom Tomatoes - set of Six Heirloom Tomatoes -
  5. Plant Radicchio, Swiss Chard and Mesclun Lettuce seeds
  6. Consider the summer garden, beyond tomatoes...

More to follow.  2010 Goal List Below.  Cheers, it was a beautiful day for a run!
