After a few weeks off from gardening, I found myself digging in the dirt again this last weekend. Weeds had taken over one of the flower beds and I decided that it is much better to take care of them now versus doing battle later in the season when I’m planting. Digging in the dirt is so therapeutic, I just love it.
Santa, by way of my husband, made sure I started the year with updated equipment. A new garden cart, gloves and other planting tools awaited my discovery under the Christmas tree. I love all my new treasures and made good use of them in cleaning up the bed. The cart is perfect to hold all my tools and discarded weeds as I work my way down the bed.
My husband followed up my efforts with mulch to help keep the bed less weedy. 🙂
Happy Gardening, Sheri
