I was thinking about what I could blog about and didn’t want to talk about the seed catalogs that have been dropping through my mail slot every day (even though I LOVE getting them!).
So I started to think what I could write about. I thought about the Grow It Eat It initiative and the classes that have been taught. I remember a lot of people saying “I’m going to start a garden next year” and then it hit me. What would happen if everyone who reads this just helped one person plant a garden–whatever the size–this year? That could possibly be hundreds of gardens started in Maryland!
So here’s my challenge. I even made my own graphic for it! My personal pledge this year is to help at least one person start a garden. It can be a container garden, a small raised bed, or a nice-sized garden (whatever that may be).
There’s no place to sign up, it’s just a personal pledge and I’d love to hear from everyone when they’ve accomplished their goal! I have two people in mind already that have been saying they are going to plant a garden for at least three years.
Is there anyone out there willing to take this pledge with me? I think it’s going to be lots of fun!
So here’s to 2011 and greener gardens for all!
Until next time….happy garden thoughts!
