The Things I’ve Neglected List

Similar to the “Things to do List” in form my “Things I’ve Neglected List” contains the stuff I should have already accomplished but didn’t for some reason (Greenhouse shed construction). The garden chores that have be displaced by the aforementioned project still need to be accomplished and I really hope to when I get the time!
Things I’ve Neglected (in no particular order):
  • Pot up two Chocolate Eupatorium cuttings that have rooted (weeks ago!).
  • Pot several coleus cuttings into an indoor winter pot.
  • Plant crocuses. It’s time, it’s definitely time to plant bulbs!
  • Update the Fall Color Project for a grand finale post.
  • Pot up several Persian Shield cuttings. The plant is toast but the cuttings live on!
  • Write about How to Propagate Persian Shield cuttings.
  • Finish cleaning out the vegetable garden. I still have lettuce happily enjoying the weather.
  • Weed the corner shade garden, the front garden, the…er…everything!
  • Figure out how I want to make my next raised beds. Two big ones? Four small ones? Wood? Stone? There are so many options for good beds. I’d better take a look back at my 11 Things To Think About Raised Beds Post!
  • Plant neglected plant swap plants!
  • Transplant two small maples and a sycamore.

There’s a whole lot more for this list that pertains to the greenhouse but I’m leaving that off as technically it hasn’t been neglected. In fact it’s coming along nicely, so be on the alert for a greenhouse update!

  1. This is a list I need to create!! You can see my negligence extends to the list! ha! Your list is very interesting… and most of my neglected items will become Spring 2010 projects. 🙂

  2. Oh man, I envy your list because it is a LOT shorter than mine! LOL. Looks like you've got your hands full. Good luck with all of your "neglected" endeavors 🙂

  3. Hey Dave, what gardener doesn't have one of these lists?! Most of us are simply too disorganized to admit it! Thanks for coming out into the open with yours; it may inspire the rest of us to finally figure out how much we need to do and set some priorities!

  4. Oh man, my list is way longer! With all the rain and high water we had last week, I also have lots of muddy footprints in the house from the dogs. Good list

  5. SG,

    Some of my items just have to get done this fall! Like the crocuses.

    Miss Daisy,

    The funny thing about lists is that they get longer the more time you spend thinking about them!


    Yes I'm coming clean! I neglect all kinds of things, just not usually the garden!


    I can't imagine what cleaning up that mess is like. I hope it goes much easier and faster than I imagine!
