The sun is shining, at least some of the time, and it's warmer during the day - it's time to let loose of those winter doldrums and get this party started!

May 1 2024

The list of exciting projects is endless, it's hard to choose. Should I garden for a while, and get plants moved around, or should I make a window box out of barnboards? They all need doing, and if you don't have some kind of plan, you'll find yourself going in circles.

When this happens to me, I make a list of all the things I want to do, then prioritize them, and put them into some kind of order. Then tackle them, one at a time. If you get stalled, then it's acceptable to move onto a different project, especially if, for instance, you need to make the planter first, for the plants to go into.

Maybe you need to make a driftwood window box before you can get the Wave petunias planted. Or, you could maybe build a twig trellis before transplanting that Clematis into a different spot. Critical path is important. That's making sure that there is no conflict in the timing of all the projects in your busy mind.

What is the most difficult part of getting things done in your garden?

Join the Rustic And Succulents Group to share your ideas and inspiration, we'd love to have you!

When you've built something you're proud of, brag it up! Most groups love to hear what others have been doing, so share your pictures on there with a write up on the project.

Or, you could share them on the Rustic Crafts page - scroll to the bottom of the page!
