Every new year seems full of new possibilities. Yes, I will exercise more; yes, I will eat less junk; and yes, I still need to drink more water! My goals seem so attainable in the first days of the new year. As the days pass, however, those goals seem a little more inconvenient and my resolve falls by the wayside. Of course, my lack of resolve only affects me so I’m the only loser.

This is true at your place too. So when you make your garden resolutions (and it’s never too late to make one), think about how your actions can ripple out to so many other species on this little patch of land we call our own. And when it comes time to carry out your resolutions, remember how many critters are relying on you to keep your resolve.
