2) To help with resolution 1, I will limit my purchases to a reasonable amount. The last time I shopped at Mary’s Greenhouse in McMinnville, they asked for my commercial license when I pulled up with my cartloads of plantable beauties.
3) I promise to attend more master gardener meetings. I would like to go enough that when I show up someone doesn’t try to recruit me as a new member.
4) I will find some way-hopefully non-lethal- to break my husband from using air quotation gestures and calling me “A Master Gardener” anytime he asked me a question I don’t know the answer to .
5) I will host more garden gatherings, combining two of my favorite things, flowers and friends. I will overcome the desire for my quest of perfection and let my friends enjoy the garden at its imperfect beauty. But I may need to buy some more plants first.
