Hee. I totally started a list after reading Maggie's post. I love your list, and hope that I can participate in some of your activities!

Great list & good luck getting it done! I just turned 30 in February, I should make one of these. I started that one list in 1,001 days or whatever it was, but never finished making it, lol. 35 seems much easier :)

Love your list. Hope you don't mind if I steal a few of yours when I make my own. :)

I love your list. I've been meaning to write my own. Maggie inspired a lot of us! I'm jealous of all the traveling and other awesome stuff you'll be doing in the next six years.

Um, I think you've got 13 covered. I'm pretty much doing the MLS from your recommendation. You're my inspiration!

If you plan to start a garden this year, it's time to start thinking seriously about it. Peas could have already been planted, but you're probably 3-4 weeks away from planting tomatoes, peppers and other warm-weather plants.

Most of the hard work is in the soil preparation -- so make Blake do that. :) I suggest getting a load of compost from the dump and rototilling it into the garden with some nitrogen-based fertilizer. You *could* test soil pH, but it's probably overkill.

The only other serious concerns are regular watering -- not too hard if you have a sprinkling system where the garden is on a separate station than the lawn, and weed control. The key to controlling weeds is persistence. A fifteen-minute daily checkup will save you from wasting an entire Saturday pulling weeds.

I suggest planting some cabbages, and take a picture or two of Nora in the cabbage patch. Sure, it's a cliché, but that's because it makes such a cute photo -- worth it even if you don't eat cabbage. :)

What are these other...warm weather plants? Also, what if the designated garden area is already full of knee-high weeds? Can we just rototill them under?

Oh, you!
