I can’t even remember the last time I posted a Friday Garden Update. It’s been so bitterly cold this year in New England.
But now we are seeing signs of spring.
I’ve spent hours clearing our “forest” which left my biceps sorer than they have ever been. Picture me squatting, holding the electric hedge trimmers, and fighting off head high pricker bushes. We didn’t clear the area last year and it allowed thorny brush to grow too thick for an ordinary weed whacker to handle. I was covered in thorns and deer ticks by the end of the day. But I think it was worth it.
And in case you were wondering why my Headless Husband Howard (my new blog nickname for him since we’ve yet to see his face) did help, it was because he was on Wood Pile Management duty.
He moved about two chords of wood and was also sore as hell the next day.
As for that garden, it’s cleared and planted. But there is nothing to look at yet!
Have a great weekend everyone!
