The calendar has turned to a new decade, so how about a Decade level resolution?  One great goal could be to create a plan for safe, organic gardening to help the birds and other wildlife.  Native plants generally require less water and are more resistant to disease and insects than many of the introduced or highly cultivated varieties.   Native plans also tend to attract more birds and a greater diversity of species.

An organically managed yard can be beautiful without the use of harsh chemicals and fertilizers. 

Here are some resources to help you get started.

Gardening information regional plant information on the Birdzilla.com web site.

Howard Garrett, the Dirt Doctor, has lots of information on his web site and his syndicated radio show is heard on over 200 radio stations.

The Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center maintains a nation-wide list of nurseries that specialize in native plants.

I have had excellent success with seeds from Wildseed Farms and I am the worst gardener ever.  My way of thinking is that the seeds do not get any special attention in the wild, so why should I do anything special.  I sparkle them onto the flower bed and rake lightly.  They do great and some re-seed themselves.
