It was an 8' x 11' bed and it took me over four days to clean it up but I'm finished. It looks a little sparse right now but it's much improved from its previous state.
Meanwhile, as I hauled mulch from the backyard Thursday I noticed the buds on my lilac are opening. Lilacs are an indicator of changes in temperatures and once the buds are as big as your pinky fingernail you can start planting peas. Sadly, my edible garden has been sorely neglected for over a year. That's next on my list!
