We've had some warm days at Garden on Sherlock Street. I've been finding time to clean up the garden. I've cut down salvia along the driveway and Russian Sage by the house. I've picked up a lot of trash that blew into the garden over the winter. I've raked through beds to uncover the bulbs which are sprouting. I've pulled every weed I've discovered. I've swept the walk and driveway to get rid of all the plant debris I created cleaning out the beds.
All this work and the front garden looks...bare, blah. It's ready for the plants to return and fill the beds.
Clean up in the back garden has been more hit and miss. I have raked through the raised vegetable beds and pulled out the bachelor buttons which self seeded in them. I have my seeds. Planting of vegetables will begin soon.
A cool down is expected this weekend and maybe some rain!
Take care and have a good weekend. Enjoy St. Patrick's Day Sunday too.
