Happy Spring, Hudson Valley!
I'm finally checking in for the first time this season. I'm in Rockland County and someone seems to have set off a dandelion bomb. I've never seen so many dandelions - everywhere! I've been cutting mine out one at a time with a sharp knife, because I'm stubborn about gardening as organically as possible, and leaving as little negative impact on the environment as possible. I think I may just have to live with a few of these "lovely yellow flowers" this year. (the dog likes to eat them, and they go nicely in salads)
Also noticed that the violas are plentiful and look great. I'm leaving them in the lawn and not mowing as often. I like it - it looks natural and pretty.
So, what does everyone think? Are we in another drought cycle this year? Even with all the rain we got last month, the ground is parched. I've got rain barrels around the yard, but I've had to turn the hose on a few times already.
Happy gardening this season!
