I loved your article as I'm sitting here laughing. Sure sounds real familiar! I've been adding to my Gardening Journal on DG and once I figured out how to make it work, it's pretty slick! I savaged some old blinds for plant markers, invested in a good marker and voila! It actually works. This marker doesn't wash off, it's designed for those of us who are a bit er, garden challenged? LOL
Thanks again for the lovely article, this is a great way to start 2008!

Oh I though I was the only one who dreamed of Garden Perfection !!!
It was a very good article, but as far as Garden Resulotions go, here is mine.
I will plant what I want, where I want, I will weed when I want and I will sit in the swing and look for as long as I want
Happy New Years everyone

I've been thinking of doing a journal here as incentive not to slack off. I start out strong but lose momentum, specially when it gets hot and the mosquitoes come out.

Ha ha...yep, I here Murphy laughing at me too..., along with his friend O'brien, who always says that Murphy is an optimist! But, I too, will give it a try.

Fun article!

Your planning and gardening style sounds a lot like mine! I've been sorting through my catalogs today, making a pile by the couch, getting out a fresh pad of graph paper, and sharpening my pencil. I did better last year with "don't buy it unless you know where you'll plant it," but I need to work on "don't sow 1000 seeds for it unless you know where you'll plant it!"

Thanks for an article that made a lot of good points in a very entertaining fashion!
