Resolutions for Gardeners and Rescuers

A list of New Year resolutions gardeners and rescuers.

In the new year I vow to:
Nurture more. Feed the earth with organic nutrients; plant smaller to grow stronger; and mulch…mulch…mulch.

Protect more. Save precious resources with earth-friendly products, preventative pest measures, and judicious use of water – something that will be in short supply again this year.

Re-use more. One man’s garbage is gardener’s compost; cuttings and divides extend the garden and can be shared with others to create their own.

Welcome wildlife. The garden is for sharing with all.

Even those mischievous bunnies.

And appreciate the beauty of all seasons – including the dry, dead stalks of winter.

Resolution thoughts for my rescuer friends:
“Accept the pain, cherish the joys,

    All good resolutions. We wish everyone there a very joyous new year.

    (There are a lot of plants that deter bunnies – English Ivy, Ferns, etc. Maybe some of those would help?)

  3. Love your resolutions and photos. Well, except for one – the snake. Regardless of size, they scare me to death. May all your pups find forever homes in the new year, and a since thank you goes to all of your volunteers for all of their hard work.
