I live in such a fantasy world when it comes to planning what to do in my garden. I finished a lot of the tasks, but I didn't finish it all. I had a dream of having daffodils on my front porch this spring, but I never got around to potting up any bulbs this winter. It probably would have been a bad idea anyway, since the *(^&*%^&^(&%%$@ squirrels dig up most anything that I put on the porch. I have a HUGE oak tree in my front yard with tens of thousands of acorns that fall all over my lawn. You would think that the acorns would be enough. No, no, no. They would rather dig up my porch plants and fling them all over the place than eat the readily available acorns.
Anyhow, back to the topic. I also didn't get to cleaning out the garage. My niece is spend the year teaching English in France. All her furniture is in my garage. I'm not sure that I can really do much with the garage until she gets her own place. I also haven't done much with the yard.
I HAVE at least gotten most of my seed planting finished. My seedlings look great and will soon be ready to harden off. My tomatoes are about 8 inches tall with healthy looking stems and leaves. Thank goodness for grow lights!
This next weekend, I'm going to focus on cleaning up the yard. I'll finish cleaning out the beds, mow over the bagged leaves that I have, use the shredded leaves for mulch, and put more mulch down in the muddy area on the north side of my house that the dogs run through.
