Well On the Way to spring clean-up
I have spent about 15 hours in the beds, and have made a lot of progress. I was quite behind since I did not do enough gardening in the hot dry summer.
We are having some nice days, and we are having short cold snaps...it may be in the 20 overnight, but back to the 50a or 60s the next day.
We have had an awful lot of rain...this has been the sort of wet winter that once was normal for us; prior to the last few bad drought years. We are supposed to get rain tonight, stopping midday tomorrow, then three more rains during the the next 10 days to two weeks. The ground is quite moist, but not soggy, and the ground in the regular beds is nice and loamy, so it is great for weeding. Oh yes, the weeds love the rain as much as any other plant.
The first tulips are blooming and daffodils are lovely right now. The tulip tree keeps putting on blooms and getting them frostbitten.
Ah well, weather. We can only talk about it, not change it.
