Hoe Your Rows
It's hard to believe that spring is almost here. It doesn't feel like all that long ago we were buried under ice and snow (some of you still are!). Here in the south the trees have started to bud, and the process of playing in the dirt will soon commence.
The perennials have already given way in the last week or so to the sunshine and warmer temps.
What I think I'll enjoy most about this garden is how easy it will be to maintain. Since I'm bringing in the dirt and not using the existing soil I can the gauge the ratio of organic matter just right and my weeding will be minimal. (I'm not using the existing soil because our house is a fairly new build and the landscapers merely laid sod over dirt.
As I progress I'll keep you posted! What are your garden plans for the year?
