Today was SUCH a good day! The sun was shining ☀️and it was also warm... we started a whole slew of seeds indoors and then went out to the garden for some much needed tidying. The work we did today is sometimes done in the fall before the snow... but we didn’t get to it last year. So, we needed to get some clean up done prior to prepping beds for this years growing season. Today we pulled up all of the cucumber and bean trellises, removed the corpses of all corn, peppers, eggplant, and several other plants and I did some major trimming of dead foliage from my coneflowers, rudbeckia, and yarrow. We also got half of the veg beds covered in black tarp to kill off the weeds before compost is added in a few more weeks. Tomorrow, pending more nice weather, we’ll get the rest of the veg beds covered with tarp and will plant out the peas.
Two views to show our progress... first and third are before shots, second and fourth are after. Yes, there are lots of weeds still, but’s that’s okay - we’ve got loads to do and some time to do it, as always 😂 but for now I’m basking in our progress and will likely not be able to move tomorrow... 💁🏼♀️🤰🏼😴 - 13 minutes ago
