Spring clean up already

bklyn2pok(6)March 23, 2012

I feel like I'm getting ahead of myself by cleaning up my flower beds in March but the crocus are blooming, the daffodils are starting to bloom and the tulips are 6 inches tall. My lilies are coming up not to mention irises and daylilies.

I'm worried that with this early Spring we may have an early Fall. Does anyone have advice for gardening in the unpredictable weather this year?

Just try to enjoy it. Keep up with the weeding and watering. Watch for slugs and beetles. Every year is different and presents different problems and joys. My flowers are beautiful this year, veggies have done well. This intense heat isn't helping but I get into the garden whenever I can.

Have fun!

And in contrast to last year I am just now starting to cleanup the yard and planting beds. Can't wait to see what this year holds!
