Today I went out to trim off my lirope...(I have 2 and I had already trimmed one.)

Then I began to clear off the old dead leaves, and remove the weeds that are already growing new this year.

Long story short, I cleaned off the whole bed, and replanted some of the perennials that are already coming up.

One bed down 3 to go.....and then I begin planting new flowers...

I've been so swamped with coding that I still haven't done much more than picking up in the yard and checking the pool cover; there's so much that I need to get done, too...

Not to worry...There is plenty of time...Sadly it WILL wait for you.

My frost date is not until like a bit before Mother's day. I just had a chance to go out today so I did.
Truthfully that will most likely be it for a month or more....

I hope to get some dirt and pots to start my seeds and finally use my new tiny greenhouse. Haven't even check on the peas and potatoes. Maybe this weekend.

I chopped down a wisteria bush and put a new cover on the pool; at least I got something done, it's supposed to be in the 80's tomorrow...

The way I look at it is "It's another job done." Eventually if we keep at it, we will be done....Right ???

That's the truth Sunny.

It's been so windy here and it was 29° this morning and I've been at the hospital all the time so I haven't done anything. Hope you get my seeds started this week.

Today I refilled a large pot & planted 6 cutting of our SandCherry bush. I sure hope this works. And oh, I used root hormone & dampened the soil before I planted them.
here is hoping prayers

Cover that pot with plastic and you'll have better luck with those cuttings, Carol. Like making a mini greenhouse.

I used the plastic from the cleaners one year and overwintered a bunch of plants.

Gardening with little ones is so much fun. GG can't wait to plant her 'Rattlesnake beans'. They make the bean package with a cartoon snake on it so it draws little gardeners right to it in the store lol

Rattlesnake beans. Sounds yummy :)

I forgot to get dirt to start my other seeds. If I only had a brain.

Sherri, GG planted rattlesnake beans last year for the first time, they are a mottled, long, slender bean that grow on poles. They were delicious...in fact the best beans we ever ate. They only took up a 4 ft space in the garden and we got buckets and buckets off them. I'll plant them every year now.

What I did today was :

I weeded my herb garden, & trimmed it back some (the Oregano was taking over my chives.)

I moved around the fencing to better suit the herb plot

I removed my large & half dead sage plant. I will add a new one back next week after the rains.

I planted a Sweet Basil plant in one of my planters on the deck.

I weeded some of my rocked area (although I think I will have to (by hand) take up my rocks, and then put down new landscaping paper & replace the rocks....and perhaps put down some new sand under my colored bricks that I use as edging.

I re-weeded my big flower bed a bit, then I added some new soil to it. More needs to be bought & added I am sure.

and OH..I weeded & cleaned out my big half barrel that I plant on planting a tomato into.

Yesterday before going to the hospital I covered the potatoes again and planted some tomato seeds. I've got to start cucumbers and squash.

Next week I am going to put in my tomatoes & a few other veggies.
I may plant some lettuce & onions this week as well.

I want you to keep us posted on your potatoes, Sheri----unless I plant some in one of my big pots I will not be planting any of those this year.

Tonight I put out a new BLUE pot on my porch and planted most of the flowers that I bought day before yesterday.

Then I took the other Blue pot that I bought and transferred my lilac bush that I have been growing from a small start for the 10 years we have lived here. It is from a lilac bush that Valarie bought when she was in college & was homesick. The old pot was so brittle that there had to be a new one.

Another job done, as the saying goes.

I pruned our rose bushes (and one of the neighbors), picked quite a few of them, then turned the water on and hooked up the hoses and set all of the timers. The front faucet had a bad leak so I ended up in the basement for a while tightening the connections to fix the leaks. spring prep, I suppose...

Well at least "That is another job done"
After all not all of our spring garden prep is fun..but it still has to be done.

DH was feeling sorry for me today, as the kids could not make it home, so he took me out & had me go shopping for some flowers.
I decided to go to Lowe's.
Well, they had tons of flowers, but not any smaller perennial's. So of course I bought a few veggie plants, and a few annuals. I planted most of them this afternoon. There are 3 left to be planted. BUT as we are supposed to have bad storms the next few days I did not plant them all. Also some of the plants that I put in pots are waiting in the garage to be put out.

I hope that everyone is having a Good Mother's Day / Sunday.

After all not all of our spring garden prep is fun..but it still has to be done.
The pool is what I'm dreading; I can't seem to find a cover that fits, so there's all sorts of fun things in there right now... When I have the cash to open the pool for the season, it'll take quite a bit of chemicals to bring it back to "clean" lol.

We have a Lowes down the street, and a Home Depot up the street, we end up spending a lot of time at them both, lol.

I wish I had those stores so close to me. But then, perhaps it is good that I do not.... blush
