Hey, fellow gardening friends!
I know I’ve been posting a lot of gardening stuff lately, but it is mid-May and that’s the main thing on my mind, lol! I’ve got my potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, and green beans in the ground, but I still have sweet potatoes, Indian corn, watermelons and more strawberries to plant (my first set of strawberries died in our extreme Kansas weather!).
What have you all be planting??? Tell me in the comments below!

OK, so I’ve always been one to have resolutions or goals at the start of a new year. Ever since I was a kid, I’d write them down in my diary or really ponder something. As an adult, those resolutions became things like “Keep the house cleaner.” Oh-so exciting and specific, right?
Usually my resolutions revolved around my faults and very often, I never lived up to what I thought I should do. I didn’t have a clear definition, though, just a general idea.
This year I’m trying it differently. I’m going to list out my specific goals (and give you periodic updates!) and also have a word that sums it all up.
