Trees are budding. Tulips, Daffodils, Blood Root and Trilliums are cropping up around me. :D

Then again, so is the lawn, dandelions, and mustard weed. :(

Woodchipping is way ahead of schedule.... over half done.

And it appears my 40-year-old Craftsman rototiller has died (unless I can get it fixed). Guess my first spring project is to get it fixed or replaced. :?

What's your spring looking like?

We are doing our part to get the economy going by updating of the outside. The landscaping on our home needs change.

Annuals or perennials, or both?

I would love to do both....
The trouble lies in the fact that I know so little about what to plant and where.

Lots of perrenials coming up, but looks like some stuff was lost. Also have alot of "winter kill" on our lawn. Anyone else have this problem??? :?:

I planted two 8'x4' raised garden beds yesterday. A wee bit late, but considering the cool temps, probably a good idea.

Bed one has 3 tomato varieties, jalapeno peppers, sugar snap peas, bush beans, basil. A friend dropped off some more tomato plants (3 more varieties!) so I'll have to see if I can fit them in...

Bed two has pumpkin, spaghetti squash, cucumbers. That stuff spreads out. Hope the pie pumpkins do well. Had one good year and one bad so far.

:tongue8:

Our yard looks like Better Home & Gardens! Fresh mulch, perrenials are growing good and some have bloomed already. Hanging pots & patio pots are beautiful. Who needs to go on the garden walk just sit on our patio! And we have a great lawn service & didn't have one dandilion which is amazing!!! Now if it would only warm up!!!

What happened with the winter kill on your lawn?

95% of my plants are in (way ahead of last year) so once a few other perrenials are done, I can replace them with annuals and be done.

Although I do want to make a cart for my second rain barrel so I can move it around the yard. :scratch:

Guess some areas were just slow, but now lawn looks great!! And more perrenials will be blooming in a couple weeks! Finally maybe the warm weather will speed things up too.
