Success!


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!

Curb strip looks great, M! I think you should post more tips on what plants can go in the ground when, so that those of us way more clueless know when to start the lettuce...and the tomatoes!

Will do Jessica ... as soon as Max cooperates!

I think you did a great job -- it won't look so sparse in a few weeks.

Thanks for the encouragement Nancy. Despite wanting to fill that spot with plants, I have more than enough work throughout my yard. Besides, an artist knows when to stop, right? Maybe just a coral bells here and there ...

I think it looks very nice and has the look of early spring with things to look forward to.

Precious wee one. My husband and older son are named Max. They were the only ones I knew for decades; now the name is enjoying a come-back of popularity. I didn't get much gardening done when my children were small.

Enjoyed my visit. Don't try to do too much.
