The big one this year is top dressing the lawn mower wheel ruts out of my lawn and then going over it AGAIN with a slow running thatcher to even it out and get it down into the remaining thatch. Have to keep the earthworms and ants producing for the Robins, Cowbirds, blackbirds and Northern Flickers.

Is that a regular thatcher, or a Colin Thatcher?
Try a dethatcher for an opposite effect.
Colin Thatchers can abrade the colin.

The Greenery opens tomorrow. I can't wait to walk the aisles and inhale the smell of spring.

What a gorgeous day.
I uncovered the pond today. Was nice to see lots of new growth and a few lily leaves.
I suffered a winter fatality however.
Gill passed away during the dark months.
Whitey and Goldie appear to have gained an ounce.
Nemo sure missed me.

So beautiful out! I got my work garden all weeded and the soil tossed today. We already have onions starting to grow, and it is nice to see so many worms.

I'm buying onions and shallots AGAIN to test just how much of a failure I can be at them.

I'm good at un yuns. I just finished last year's un yuns.
:-( had to buy foreign un yuns recently.
They sure are good man repellant.
