The weather here was so nice to day, almost spring like. Sunny with a lil breeze. I think I even broke a sweat a few times. I started out putting the trellis up higher on the cellar wall for the thornless blackberry to climb on and pruned the lavendar that is growing at the base of the vine. Got the dead leaves and trash off the flower bed on the right side of the cellar door. Looks a lot neater now. The blackberries had trailed down and touched the ground and 2 of the tips had taken root. I pulled those out and cut them to transplant elsewhere. I shoveled out the ditch behind the outbuilding to drain the runoff water away. Dang I am already paying for that task with sore joints and achey back. Then I took the leaf rake and cleaned up the mess I made yesterday cleaning out the herb and flower beds. It does look some better out there. After a look at the onion bed, I can see onions starting to grow already.
The asparagus should be up pretty soon. So we can have some fresh green veggies.
The flower bed along the front looks better without all the stubble of dead plants from last fall. It is starting to show some green as well.
The herb bed is all cleaned off and the wire put back to keep the dog an cats out. Even a lil green showing in here too.
The heirloom rose that I dug up at an old homestead up the road from us has lil tiny leaves already. I am hoping to get it set in the ground tomorrow.
So till next time, blessings from the McGuire homestead.
