Our Community Poll ending 3 March, asked the question, "When do you begin planning for spring planting?"
Twenty-five percent of respondents said they begin in December.
Ten percent said they begin in January.
Thirty percent said they begin in February.
Twenty-five percent said they begin in March.
Five percent said they begin planning in April.
Five percent said they begin planning for spring planting in May.
Clearly, the majority (65%) begin planning before spring arrives.
I'm reminded of some of my favorite quotes on planning:
He who fails to plan plans to fail. (Anonymous)
Good fortune is what happens when opportunity meets with planning. (Edison)
Planning is bringing the future into the present so that you can do something about it now. (Alan Lakein)
A good plan today is better than a perfect plan tomorrow. (Paraphrasing General Patton)
Organizing is what you do before you do something, so that when you do it, it is not all mixed up. (A.A.Milne)
It is far better to foresee even without certainty than not to foresee at all. (Poincare)
