    A good day in the garden today. It began with picking up the seed orders from our gardening club.

    Next we finished cleaning up the plot for the Bocking 14 comfrey. The final plot for the spuds was prepared.

    Brush was rounded up and taken to the rough compost dumping site.

    After this it was time to receive visitors. Tea and bikkies. Conversation and on the way home we detoured and went to the harbour for a fassie.

    T'was a perfect day with warm temps and sunshine. Yippee!

    Yes it was a perfect day. Warm and sunny.
    I planted my second round of peas, beets, spinach and swiss chard. Started another wicking system for my tomato plants. Sat on my deck and painted two rusty pheasants.

    YES, YES, YES!!! I got out there in the snow, slush and sleet...Cleaned up one high tunnel and planted 75 cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower. All with my dear husbands prompting and help (otherwise it wouldn't have gotten done).
    Watered fertilized mulched and covered with row cover since it is supposed to get down in the teens tonight and later this week.

    Continued the clean up of dead stuff. Finished weed killing/prevention in the succulent/cactus bed.It was questionable if it was too wet to mow, but I went for it and only left a few ruts in the backyard. And got a little more cleaned out of that icky fence line. and officially finished a bed extension (which meant just re-aligning the rock border).

    Tried doing some tidying up this morning. Got a few plants trimmed up in the front yard, but the rains got too heavy. The plant cuttings will have to lay until I get a drier day. :-?

    More cleaning and bed preps.
    I got some plants from Nettie up the way. I do not know what they are, but they sound quite nice. I'll post pics when they bloom.
    Made plans for possible grass path improvement.
    Planted three Bocking 14's.

    Prepped the beds and put out a few onion sets under a homemade greenhouse(you place it over the bed). Prepped the potato tower for this years experiment.

    Nothing much. Trimmed one sword fern, got several more to do before the new growth starts. With Daylight Savings time have more time to putter in the yard after work :-D

    Well, today is a new day ....and the weather is warm for a change...for a day or two. We moved the rabbits out of the greenhouse and put down ground cover & the drip tape and put in the tomatoes for my early crop. Unfortunately I was short 9 tomatoes since some didn't germinate as expected, but it will work out fine. I'll put some in later.

    Have warm weather, but the wind! Holy cripes! I managed to prune a Butterfly Bush, but the wind annoyed me so much I gave up.

    It was windy here, too. I was inside the greenhouse and it was buffeting it and howling through the trees behind the house.
