My New Year’s Resolution For 2011

Yes, I’m talking about my New Year’s Resolution for 2011. It’s not about losing weight coz that’s an every year resolution. Nor will I promise to  stop smoking coz well, I don’t smoke anyway, hah. For 2011, I am going to try my best to take care of my garden. See, the front of our house is perfect for flowers. Even at the end of the driveway will get flower treatments from me. My husband has cleaned everything off to get it ready for Spring. Then yesterday, he took care of the fenced-in lot in the backyard to prepare it for my herbs and vegetable.

I’m so excited. The lot is actually bigger than what it shows in the picture. There’s more space on both sides. To your right, there’s that spot with no grass. My husband said that would be the perfect place for the herbs. Then in the middle going to the left would be for my veggies. Woohooo. Home-grown veggies are the best!!

I’m hoping I have my Mom’s cool gardening hands (what’s it called again?). She used to have an orchids garden in our house. She had other plants too like cactuses and others I can’t remember right now. It’s been a long time. So Yay, wish me luck. My husband told me to start reading up on gardening so I’d be ready by Spring.
