Remember the list? This may be the best shape I've ever been in by the second week of April! In addition, I took down my Christmas lights today, edged my flower-beds and extended one by a couple feet. The lawn hadn't taken hold and it was coming up with weeds, so I thought converting it made just as much sense. With a load of triple mix, courtesy of bf's cousin (THANKS!), we got the garden ready to go. We doubled its size from 2 meters to 4. This should give me plenty of space to grow several tomato, pepper, and potato plants, as well as some squash, lettuce and spinach. I also topped up some of the flower beds I added to my yard last year. The triple mix will be a welcome addition to the dry, sandy soil found around most of my yard, but I'd still like to work more compost into my beds to help retain moisture.
Now, to just get my lawn sorted out...
- Clean out the garage.
- Finish raking & tidying the lawn
- Put the branches out for pick up
- Dump run - old paint cans and drywall have been piling up
- Extend the garden
- Do something about my lawn - how can I get rid of grubs and thistles?
- Reseed where needed
