"My resolution is to start gardening earlier in the season and mulch more."

"Our resolution for our home garden is to replant our front yard in the spring and to have fun mapping it out on paper this winter. We have just remodeled and added a front porch. We are looking forward to some old favorites like azaleas as well as adding more hydrangeas and winterberry hollies. Also thinking of a few plants we can have in pots on the porch steps and up on the actual porch. I have been keeping lists and pictures of things I love so will be fun to pull it all together ..."
~ Karen Sutter, Arlington VA

"Resolution - to get everything planted that is sitting in my driveway!"
~ Wendy Brister, Wrightsville PA 

"New Year's Resolution: Consistent and continuing weeding effort!"
~ Judy Daniel, Washington, DC
