Sunday gardening work : LUSENET : Country Families : One Thread

Sunday is often my work in the yard day, and today was the first day of spring here, no matter what the calendar says. I spent all day in the yard, spraying weed killer where necessary, weeding five LARGE raised flower beds, mulching, planting irises and ferns, mulching, cleaning out the small water feature where the doves drink, trimming back winter nipped plants, carting trimmings to my NEW compost bin that I made this week with T posts and cattle panels, mulching, and watering fruit trees.

It is VERY dry here in south Texas. The farmers are starting to plant corn, but we need rain SOON.

Did I mention shoveling mulch from the pile to the wheelbarrow then out to the flower beds? I think I will sleep well.

I think I will sleep well tonight,

Hi Rose. I sure wish I could go out and work in the yard. We have 7" of new snow. I am usually able to start yard work towards the end of March, but some years I can't start until a couple weeks into April due to the snow. I hope this year the snow melts early. George
