Re: garden planning

"it's definitely not my way"

There's wisdom in those words. That feeling that 'this just isn't working for me' is what has often bugged me about my past garden planning experiences. I have several times, ended up dissatisfied with myself by the end of the season and I have finally realized that I let my impulsive fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants personality sabotage my efforts way too often.  I am going to try to be more thoughtful, more of a planner, more focused in advance this year. But I promise I won't be overdoing it. I think I have come to a place of understanding myself well enough to just grow a little and still be very flexible if my plans need to be revised or discarded later.

So much feedback! I appreciate all of it!  thumbsup

Re: garden planning
