This year, my wonderful husband helped me acquire some straw bales for the garden. Neighbors had the bales as part of their Christmas display. The bales were still sitting in their front yard in February so WH asked them what they were doing with the bales and the husband responded right away with, "do you want them?" WH told him, "sure, for the garden." Six FREE straw bales for the garden. We just had to move them. If I get to put any water on the garden, this straw will help keep the moisture. If I manage to get any produce, some will be going across the street.
March is always up and down at Garden on Sherlock Street. Snow, warm, rain (maybe), wind, sun, etc. Anything can happen. I'm hoping to start cleaning up the perennial beds soon and making some real plans on what will actually get planted considering the watering restrictions we now have. I have a cool new sculpture piece to add to one of the beds too. Photos will come when it's ready. Hopefully, the early seeds will hit the soil as well. The March tour photos will come soon.
