We've finally past the danger of frost, so today was the first big gardening day for me. The tulips and some late daffodils were still showing their colors.
Self-seeded larkspurs in the annual bed; I love flowers that come up by themselves.
I went to the Home Depot this morning for supplies and seeds. I was loading a 50-pound bale of peat moss onto my cart when a 20-year-old female employee saw me and came running over with an alarmed look on her face, saying "Are you alright? Do you need help?" Thanks, I thought, I was just fine until you showed up.
I upended the composter and got 30 gallons of lovely compost out, which I started digging in with peat moss and lime. My soil, after 13 years of work; it started out as miserable clay but now it is really quite nice.
Ready for planting.
After dinner, Clara and I put in the first seeds. Still lots more to do.
