I am not sure what a "Buddy" does but I am open to trying it. I live in south Louisiana so gardening has begun for us this season already. My profile picture shows my pansies, petunias and calendulas I planted last fall and are now in full bloom. (Yes, we plant in fall for early spring blooms down here since our winter is so mild). Azaleas are in full bloom now and I am starting to plant the many pots on my patio and around my pond.

I'd love to participate in the next round of buddies again! Perhaps April or May we could start? I know the growing season is not starting until May in MN, but I know there are some things we can do to prepare our gardens.

An excuse is just a challenge to figure out how to do something different.

I would like a buddy. I have moved to an area where I don't know anyone and have yet to make any friends to help keep me motivated. This is my first time with a full garden, I have grown herbs in the past but not veggies as I am now.

I would like to be a buddy! I am not sure I will have a lot of gardening to do, as my daughter has taken over the SFG plots, but I just have to have at least a salad garden and my berries. Not very experienced- this is only my 4th year. I am also attending college full time, but I do try to get on sparkpeople every day ( I have been sick for a month so I'm just getting back to it)

I would like to be a buddy and have a buddy too.
Joleen, if you don't already have a buddy do you want to be a buddy with me? Seems we have a couple things in common (love of photograhy--but your photos are much better!), cats, and gardening.
I live in a suburb of Chicago IL.

Hi Sunny, I am a bit behind but would like a buddy too!

Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense.

In reply to the questions about "buddies". When you sign up and get assigned a buddy, it is for a period of time (usually a month) and you can support that buddy by sending goodies, stopping by to say Hi, offering any support they need on their spark journey and with their gardening. It is just a great way to get to know another member a little better.

Hope this answers your questions.

Sunny

So good to see the positive responses....

Oh I'm absolutely in! I'm an urban gardener in zone 6 (Kansas city). I am a very experienced gardener, and I SERIOUSLY need to get back on my weightloss plan. I have gained back 10 pounds since the holidays :( I look forward to meeting my new budy!

Count me in. I have never participated in this type of on-line activity, so I will need a little more information on how it works! Sounds like fun.

Anyone who wants to friend me can, feel free and I'll friend you back!

Sign me up for a buddy, thank you for wanting the buddy system again. I made this a sticky topic so it will stay on top of the thread.

If you need help with the buddy system just ask Sunny or myself and we can send out messages to the team and get a buddy list up and running.


Happy gardening everyone.
Sandy
