but now the sun is out and it looks to be a good day coming. We can’t roto-till at the Moreau Community Garden because the ground is too wet. That was rescheduled for Wednesday morning.
But there is still plenty to do in the garden:
At my home, I need to weed dozens of tiny maple seedlings that have germinated in the mulch. They are easy to pull as they have no foothold, but there are many this year.
Next, I will trim back any dead branches I missed from the hydrangea, smoke bush, Rose of Sharon, rhododendron and azalea shrubs. I waited and watched until now to give them time to bud. I have scraped a thumbnail along the questionable branches and looked for signs of life…meaning green as the scarped spot. And if I have doubts when I’m out there pruning, I will wait a little longer still.
I applied the crabgrass and lawn fertilizer.
And, I will plant arugula in one of seven Earthboxes that I affectionately refer to as “The Farm.”
I love the colors and think it will look festive at the upcoming garden party.
What are you up to today?
