garden resolutions: what i’ll do differently — A Way to Garden | Annie Haven | Haven Brand | Scoop.it

AUTUMN, NOT NEW YEAR’S, is when I make my gardening resolutions. As I gradually pull things and cut others back, I’m deliberately contemplating what I’ll do differently next year: more of this, less of that—you know the thinking.

Proven Winners | A Letter to Me | Annie Haven | Haven Brand | Scoop.it

Dear Younger Niki,

Just look at you. So excited about your new career choice (although you can always fall back on that history degree, right?) and just heading off to study horticulture. Guess what?
