I have about 4 yards of compost (the year's worth) to dump on the garden. Ill do it this weekend on the empty areas. I still have some late stuff in the ground.
My chrysanthemums are all starting to bloom.
Petunias are still blooming.

I stil have cherry tomatoes happening up against the house - not as sweet though.

Hey, a friend gave me some dahlias - when do I pull those inside?

I have three Walnut trees to give away. They're tiny right now. Who wants them?

Picked the fatest cucumber hiding the garden. Still have carrots and lettuce and the tiniest pumpkin.

I'm still picking chard, and the cherry tomatoes up against the house are lasting :biggrin:

No walnut trees for me, please. There is one in the neighbourhood, and a number of overenthusiastic squirrels who think my garden beds are the perfect place to hide their cache. I am forever digging the friggin' things out.

It is green bin day and we have two bins filled. Ours and our neighbours, we love you neighbour :heart:

And as soon as they are empty we have a wee bit more to put in. And that is WITH all the composting we do. It's amazing how productive this property can be.

Has anyone heard of N-Sulate? supposed to be for protecting your plants. Mara doesn't carry it.

An astonishing amount of yard clean up was accomplished today after work!

And Lady t, if that works, let us all know once you get it going?

Well, the snow is sticking up here. It looks beautiful. I got most of the yard work done yesterday. I did decide that this year I’ll do a heavy spring cleanup instead of a fall cleanup. The snow looks lovely on the grasses and itoh peonies.

It is too early though.

Way too early, could not agree more.

So glad we got so much done by now. I still want to dump leaves on the roses tho, I hope it's nice by my days off. :135:

Well, I forgot to bring in my gourds. They are stashed out on my deck, under cover. I can still defrost/cook/eat them, can't I?

All you can do is try. Might taste funny tho. :135: I got six bags of leaves out of plastic bags and in the composter today after work.

Rain barrels have been emptied as much as possible due to the thaw.
