Gardening resolutions, Jan. 1

    Gardening resolutions

    Make these six New Year gardening resolutions to grow your best garden yet.

    1. I will use mulch in the garden to conserve water and prevent weeds.

    2. I will only use a pesticide when necessary and use the right one for the problem.

    3. I will get a soil test and follow the recommendations.

    4. I will stake all the plants that need staked before they fall over.

    5. I will rotate my vegetable crop.

    6. I will use soaker hoses to conserve water and decrease disease pressure.
