Remember our Challenge last year? Well, it was such a huge success that we’re doing it again!
We all know how hard it is to get through the winter without much gardening to do. We can do it TOGETHER with this creative January Challenge!
Many of us have a file of garden ideas or have wanted to do a project they’ve seen here on our page. Look through your file or in our albums and pick one you can do inside or outside in good weather…So..
Announcing a January Project Challenge!
Join us! Read carefully:
Step#1 Choose any garden project you’ve wanted to do.
Step#2 Decide to do it now and post your intentions, by naming your intended project.
Then…. TWO photos
Step#3 Sometime THIS month, post a “How to” photo of the materials you’re using.
Step#4 Sometime THIS month, post a photo of your Finished project!
Label all your photos “January Project Challenge”
Sooo, first step: Write a post on our Wall OR in the comments here, naming your project AND the words, “January Project Challenge”
