Tips for Hardy Gardeners: Resolutions for the New Year
Early January is hardly the prime time for gardening in the Northland, but Tom Kasper has a take on New Year's resolutions that might get you thinking about how you can make gardening a big part of your 2023.
"Here's the thing about gardening," says Kasper about gardening being a part of many resolutions, "it checks all the boxes." And it's tough to argue against that. Gardening ties into any number of goals that folks might have.
Exercising more? Gardening is physical and certainly works your muscles and cardio.
Eating better? The produce that will ultimately be springing up from the ground can help with that. More outside time? Connecting with neighbors? Additional quiet time? Gardening hits on all the big resolutions.
Although it's only January, some visioning is a good way to get a leg up on the season. "If you want to garden more in 2023 the plan can start now," says Kasper. "There are a lot of things we can be doing." Browsing seed catalogues can be an easy way to get your mind on the right track.
Whatever your resolution, there's a good chance that gardening could compliment your goal.
