‘Tis the season for holiday cards bearing family newsletters. We were just reading one friend’s month-by-month reporting on their family’s magnificent year of adventures and achievements.  When we were done chuckling about how funny our own warts-and-all newsletter might be, we reflected on what a wonderful year it really has been and how blessed we are. (The milestones and travel adventures could be a post of their own.)

In that spirit, here’s my brief garden newsletter of 2018.  Let’s take a quick spin through this year in gardening. A reality check in easily digestible posts.

It was a year of continued learnings. Of small triumphs leading to cumulative progress. Of small triumphs balanced with smaller tribulations.

Your standard gardening season.

Wishing you a very happy holiday season and a new year of peace, joy and health.
