I don't usually make resolutions, but I am thinking of making one---might fall down on keeping it?
My resolution would be to start seeds for one plant each day of the year.
Or every Saturday, sow 7 types.
Or start a tray of 32 plants once a month.

I do have lights in the basement, so that I could start warm sowers early.
Winter sowers would be done most of the beginning and end of the year.

The difficult time would be the middle of a hot summer?

I like that resolution. Although I know what you mean about the hot summer; I tend to lose the desire to go outside when it gets too hot and the weeds are getting out of control. But, that might be a good time to try some seed sowing indoors. Maybe try some exotic seeds.
