Winter here in Nebraska has been wild with temperature swings of 50 degrees or more from day to day. Last week temperatures were single digits with a high of 11 degrees. Today on January 4th the temperature will top 50 degrees. I've seen flocks of geese that don't know whether to go North or South. I suspect plants are having a difficult time to decide if it's time to grow or sleep. It is shaping up for an interesting year for gardeners. My plans are always larger than I could possibly accomplish but it's all about a little bit each day and accomplishments will be made.


Yeah, New Year Resolutions. I gave them up many years ago. I now have plans for the new year. Plans can be changed, delayed, or even cancelled if need be. Resolutions for me are destined to be broken in my chaotic life. Every day ends quite differently than what I have planned in the morning. This year my plans have the mantra "Finish it" or in the words of a famous Nebraskan comedian "Let's get ur done". I have many projects that are about half done that I started with excitement but were left undone when the excitement left. I know that none of you have have that happen. So the list is long and the plans have been formed. In the words of one of my favorite vlog gardeners, "Just do a little bit and do it often." So here's to 2019's little bit often to finish the undone projects.
