It’s Time! A Call to Action!
Can you believe it’s time to start your garden for 2010? Okay, it’s not time for ALL of you, but those with early frost dates (Red group) should be planning, starting seeds, etc. As I look outside at snow that hasn’t melted in weeks and check the thermometer (it’s about 27 degrees F), I can’t believe it myself! I promise, even though my gardening won’t start for a month or two, I won’t leave you Red and Orange groups on your own. I will start thinking green along with you!
There are several changes I have to make this gardening season. I hope many of you found my weekly email newsletters helpful as a reminder of when to plant what. This year I hope to add a fertilizing schedule (both organic and chemical) so your garden can be as green and prolific as possible.
The problem I’ve run into is this–I have over 500 requests for email newsletters. Thus far I have been sending these out manually (groan!), but gmail only allows me to send 500 per day. I’ve accepted the reality that I need to upgrade to a service that will automate the newsletters and allow me to send it to an unlimited number of people.
I hope you believe me that I do not run this site for money (the advertising just covers my costs), and I’m not trying to make a buck off you. But if I want to continue this service I can’t afford to absorb the cost myself. So, I’m asking for your help–please take the following survey so I can figure out if I can continue the newsletters and how much to charge. Just be honest!
On a more personal note, this is what I’ve been growing this winter:
This is baby Jacob in October. Check out how big he is today!
