First day of spring and my garden is under construction...

Comment by Randall Smith on March 17, 2015 at 7:38am

Oh, I forgot. I've been spreading my last autumn's pile of horse manure on the garden. The pile is still frozen in the middle, even after several days in the 60's!  Too early to plant anything yet.

Regarding ash on the garden, I'm just the opposite. My garden is very alkaline. While I have plenty of wood ash, that's the last place I'll toss it. I take it out to the surrounding fields. After all, they put lime on every year.

I don't believe the whole video, but I do recycle wood ashes by spreading them very thinly in the vegetable garden, lawn, around trees, and orchard area.  My soil is acidic, so can handle a few ashes.

Daniel, Lol. But I believe most of us would be far to soft hearted to harm one.
I found Joans drought map very interesting and she nailed where I am on it.
I'm going to read up on wood chips when I get a chance. Right now it's volleyball season for the girls and I'm busy with them four or five nights a week.

I have heard about dryer sheets for deer. I dont know if they work. Almost nothing other than fencing or dogs, seems to work around here. If you try it I would love to hear the result.

I suggested to someone they should try planting marijuana as a deer deterrent hedge. The deer might eat it, then just kind of hang out and relax. Then you could sneak up on one with a baseball bat and bop it on the head. venison time!

Finally got a little ambitious and chopped-out most of the weeds in my yard.  Maybe I'll plant peas tomorrow.

Has anyone ever heard of using dryer sheets to deter deer? I heard about it on a tv episode where police mentioned that growers use them to keep deer from eating the marijuana. I wonder where they would put them and how many of them.
Just found this interesting and worth a try for those whohave pproblems with deer.

Well that was confusing. Ky does of course join Indiana. I meant the top of the drought map reads '' drought removal''.
This little pad causes me to make a lot of errors.
@Daniel I'm glad you feel better.
Joan, happy your spirits have improved too. Mine always improve with the weather :)

Joan, that's a good guess. I'm on one of the little tips that, almost, joins In. Temps came up Friday and we had two days of heavy rain. I have good drainage. The sun came out today and it warmed to 71. I spent several hours pulling weeds and checking for new growth. The butterfly weeds are peeping through the ground. So are the bleeding hearts. The daffodils will be in full bloom in a day or so. The crocuses have bloomed and the hyacinths won't be far behind.
I thinned one patch of bee balm and transplanted another. I pruned a couple of ornamental grasses and have several more to do. I tried to turn the smaller compost heap but found it to wet. By tomorrow it should have drained enough to turn.
And best of all, I helped my nine year old gdaughter bury a small time capsule I figure the 'time' for it to come up will be next week. Lol
