In 2009, I helped weed in 2 gardens. Neither of which were my own. Produce enabling, produce harvesting, produce purchasing - I'm all over it. But despite numerous best intentions, and honestly coming by green thumb genetics on both sides, I haven't grown anything outside of a few potted plants since I had my own kiddie sized garden tools.
Hence: My only resolution this year is to plant cucumbers and dill for pickling! I figure I'll take it one crop at a time, and the prospect of canning is very motivating. So far this has at least been a great excuse to peruse mail order seed porn like real gardeners do this time of year. Actually, Katie has already generously donated some saved seeds from her own cucumber crop, but... seed porn! And I figure since Inder hasn't had luck with cucumbers here before, I ought to try to diversify my investments, right? Well, for better or worse, I will soon be the owner of these heirloom varieties:

With a side of Grandma Einck's dill.
Now, who will weed MY garden?
