Setting Intentions

January 23rd, 2017

As I’m looking through seed and plant catalogs, I’m thinking about what my intentions are for the garden this coming year. What do I want to accomplish? What can I improve? Where do changes need to be made? What are my goals with and in the garden?

One thing keeps coming up when I think through things: implementation. As I’ve lived here over the past four summers, I’ve been coming up with ideas and plans in my mind. The edible gardens have been expanded to their full size. ┬áNow it’s time to implement plans for hedges, perennial beds, gravel patios, rock walls, asparagus beds, blueberry hedges, raspberry beds, etc.

The good thing is that these things will all be easier for me to postpone for a year if the need arises (read this post if you’re not sure what I’m talking about). My vegetable growing efforts will be a bit more conservative and my implementation of hardscape and permanent plantings will be my focus. It should go nicely with my shifting schedule. I’m hoping I can get a lot of things checked off my list. One of the benefits of my intentions this year is that it should give my garden better structure and an underlying foundation to build on in the future.

What are your intentions for your garden this year?
