@frustratedearthmother I read a similar article in an old Mother Earth mag years ago. This gal felt if a tomato seed lived all winter in her garden, it would in a cup of dirt. 👍 She used similar methods but, some were seeds in a paper cup of dirt. She mulched around the containers, over top and left them out. They sprouted when time was right. Hey, in the wild it's how it works!

Most years you & I have what many consider "mild". So I'd honestly think something like peas could go direct in their row to emerge at their own temps they like. Tomatoes should take some cold, say cold frame or unheated greenhouse early. For sure, the volunteers I've had from old seed in garden were stronger.

Okay @tortoise here is my starting list

1. Don't sweat the small stuff, be more patient with myself
2. Remember most of life is the small stuff
3. Remember progress is made one single step at a time.
4. January goal is to get my office done.
5. February goal is to have a plan for gardening in 2024
6. Continue my CCC time (coffee, cats, contemplation) in the morning
7. Continue reducing the stuff, particularly books, puzzles, and games
8. Keep adding to the list

My biggest one is

1. Go to bed at 9/9:15 pm. Everything else seems to depend on this.

Health goals
1. Maintain 120 - 130#. I'm right at the top of this range, and I'd like to be in the middle. However, if I gain muscle mass, this weight goal is meaningless. Instead, I would switch to staying in size 6/size small clothes.
2. Several small goals relating to gaining muscle mass, bone mass, and mobility. Won't list them individually, but I have a detailed list of things to do.

Budget goals - Many small goals that add up to "spend less money". Closely related to budget- manage my schedule better

Parenting goals - many here too, gotta get kids to do what they're told. Build on the foundation of wake/sleep routine from 2023.

General to-do list-
Paint garden shed
Paint chicken coop
Paint west side of barn
Stain deck
Paint kids' bedrooms
Make drapes for primary bedroom (started in 2023)
Garden, but don't buy anything
