I know so many of you are writing about your spring cleaning startups and I enjoy seeing what you are doing. Sunshine, rain, mud and sunshine again.
Yes I did have help.
DGS, now 12 3/4 years old, nailed several spikes to the hinge side of the gate frame back onto the main frame. Solved the door torquing problem. Now he wants to change the colour of the fence and gate. Hmm.
He also lassoed a branch that had broken off the huge Cherry Tree and was hung up near the top. He pulled it down and added it to the pile of branches the municipality picks up twice yearly. Our Spring mulching date is the end of March.
I helped with branch hauling and cutting to the Municipal's maximum 48" length (and my tree saws were in the shed with my other saws, highly visible, amazing, just where I left them).
The 3 rather deep holes that Peaches dug during our late winter
have been filled in and wire mesh laid over the two by the Cherry Tree to discourage more digging in those spots.
The winter accumulation of dog poo is also cleaned up, bagged and gone. Of course, as those of you have dogs know ...
The smaller holes are next to be filled. I am marking them with sticks since I keep stepping in them, ankle breakers in waiting.
My two raised beds are weeded and ready for planting. Two end boards will have to replaced.
One side of the yard has been weed-eated, along the edges of the raised beds and the fence and anywhere grass and weeds were tall.
My dear friend VM, an avid gardener, helps each year with spring cleanup and autumn cleanup, thank goodness.
My share of the work (besides organizing what work I need to have help with first) has been going through the piles of stuff on the shed decks and bagging things that have absolutely no use for anyone. The dump run was Thursday, DS drove his truck and DGS and I loaded it with bagged garden refuge (for the green waste site) and garbage. I love dump runs.
I bagged stuff (from the shed deck) to be donated and added it to the donation bags in my trunk.
Also started to haul stuff to the house (from the shed deck) that may be worked on and put in my booths (cleaning, painting etc.).
Thanks for visiting.
