This post has been a hard one to get out the door.
The lingering effects of my concussion are playing a role. Maybe my noggin thinks I’m still off camping with my daughters. A lot has moved to the back burner since my fall this January. Luckily, I had a large stash of articles already written. This allowed me to continue publishing on a regular basis as I have slowly been recovering.
My procrastination may also have something to do with the fact this my 100th blog post. That’s a lot of run on sentences, plant names misspelled in Latin, and bad jokes only my cat understands, to write.
I wanted #100 to be a really good post. As I am sure you have already determined, that ship has sailed!
Instead of waiting till inspiration came and deliver some epic and enlightening topic to cover, I figured I would just share a few of my favorites from the last two years.
From my philosophical side:
- Do you have a plastic plant in your yard?
- It’s time to rethink the idea of having one big shade tree
- Nature inspired garden, your first step to create one
- Japanese garden fall color lessons you can use
- Front Yard Design for Winter Interest part 1 of 2
- Small backyard Japanese garden design Part 5 adding a tsukubai
Two Pruning posts & one that actually shows me working
Three posts to help you save money and time
- Save Money Buying Trees and Shrubs: Eight Tips
- Bare root trees to stretch your landscaping budget
- Tree planting mistakes to avoid and save time
So there is #100. Sure, I know it was not that great, but just wait till #101!

That’s a fantastic achievement, Jim! I echo Faith’s comment. You produce outstanding content so no need to apologize for not have written a 100th post. If anything, a collection of your best work is the best way to recognize how much you have written!

Jim, I love this post! Bookmarking in my Yard and Garden folder. I think it’s great to do a round up and offer a variety of topical tips to us readers, especially if we haven’t been with you the whole two years.
You shouldn’t have been so honest. Fab post for a milestone article, and you have “meant” to do that!
Congrats on completing all that writing, too. Enjoy your summer!
Thanks for the kind words Faith.
