March 1st Pledge !

I pledge to apply myself to what this garden golden rule says ! (old picture of mine .. you can tell that it was back in the days of red mulch, which is a long time ago .. black is my "gold" ? standard now!
In any case .. life is short and cleaning will always be there, so I would rather enjoy my garden and say BEANS to the house ? ..
March 1st is my crazy day ... Spring roll on ??!!

Great pledge, Joy. Count me in! The garden rules.

It's finally March, so spring is definitely on its way. Can't wait to get back in the garden. You must be chomping at the bit like I am. I'm building up so much excitement just thinking about the garden season coming up that I'm going to blow. :)

Got your email about garden babies in need of a good home. I say bring 'em on. There's always room for more leafy 'kids' over here. And believe it or not, there are still a lot of spaces to fill despite the fact that I added a gazillion new plants to the garden last year.

I have that very same sign!!!

Lisa at Greenbow said...

I could definitely get on this band wagon. Come on spring.

That's a pledge we all stand by! :-)

Thanks for your comment on my blog. I've come out of winter hibernation with a rejuvenated self -- "me time" included losing 25 lbs. I was dancing my a** off instead of blogging!

We're having spring weather here. Haven't had frost in a week or so and none in the next week. Too early for this -- everything is going to sprout up and then get killed off as our last frost date is April 15th!


VW said...

Amen to that, though my family surely wishes I wouldn't get so caught up in the garden in the afternoon that I forget to start dinner :-)

Bonnie said...

My thoughts exactly!

Hey there Martha girl : )
That is how I feel too .. bursting to get going, making a gazillion plans (tough to live up to eh ? but we are DRIVEN !!) I know my garden babies go to an excellent home : ) I just crowded way too much in as usual .. even though I have plant lists going they are for specific areas I can "expand"?
Good grief ;-) LOL

Darla girl I actually lost mine but remembered I had a picture of it .. thank goodness for digital cameras and saving to discs !!

Lisa girl up you come on the band wagon .. coffee and dougnuts included ? hehehe

Donna I can't remember who gave it to me but I loved it as soon as I saw it too !

My god Freda ! Congratulations girl you must feel fantastic : )
I so need to lose a lot of that dirty three letter word called FAT .. I am on the treadmill but I have to cut down on the eating part to get any where ? LOL
This is a long winter for us .. the snow just won't go but I know what you mean .. that has happened here too with false Spring weather other years .. scary !!
I think our last frost date is May is supposed to be May 2nd but I think it will stay longer.

VW : ) too funny girl ! I can see that happening except that we have such hot humid summers I am in the house mid afternoon, so not forgetting supper ! LOL

Bonnie Spring can't roll on fast enough for us eh ? .. enough of the white stuff !!

Amen to that pledge Joy, in fact I lived by that motto today. Did lots of weeding and spring cleanup in my front beds. Hooray for spring! :)

Cat said...

The perfect mantra! I was thinking today as I worked in the yard - leftovers are good, right?! My family can't expect a well kept garden and hot meals, right?!

Northern Beauty Seeker said...

A great saying! BTW, love your new header. :)

Skeeter said...

Love your sign! I was strolling around Garden Centers today reading some cute signs. You think I can remember any, Well, NO. Too much tequila I reckon....

You have me in a dilemma now, Spring Roll or Egg Roll??? Hum....

Oh, I just remembered one…. Garden of Weeden….

Lola said...

My sentiments for sure.

Racquel I popped over to your place and told you not to rub it in about Spring arriving over there way before it will for us !!LOL .. now it has been forecasted as many many weeks before we get a true break for Spring. Glad yu are following the motto girl !! ;-)

Cat girl left overs are the perfectly balanced meal .. just tell them that until it drives them crazy and no complaints are heard ever again ? LOL The garden appreciates you !! ;-)

Thank you Ms S ! .. Spring isn't budging where ever she is hiding so I had to "un-Spring" my look until she decides to visit? hehehe

Skeeter girl I just knew that tequilla would have a residual affect on you .. I actually had strawberry marguritas yesterday .. 2 !!! now that hasn't been done in years ! phew ... LOL
I love the Garden of Weeden .. take a note pad with you next time ? memory loss only gets worse girl ! giggle snort giggle

Lola girl don't you just hate it the other parts of our lives interfer with gardening ? LOL
