Yes I have Spring Fever – some may think it’s not SPRING yet, but it MUST be! (Thank-you Divine Creator for “El Nino!” ) The birds are out (and so are my 4 cats) the trees are leafing out, the forsythia, hyacinth and daffodils are blooming, AND my allergies are in full bloom.
I have already MOWED my lawn – the earliest in history! And I probably will need to AGAIN in a few days.
AND most importantly, my BEAUTIFUL DIRT has arrived – 13 cubic yards. One pile of Smit’s compost and another of their soil mix, all organic, too. My drive-way is smothered with it, and I can’t wait to start slinging the dirt. My friends are now starting to question just how much dirt my yard requires. My answer is “A LOT!” – every year!
The sun toasted the yard for several hours today and I jumped into action. The weeds are slipping out of their beds easier every year – this compost is magic, soft, rich stuff. If I work hard and fast enough, maybe I can even get a 2nd load this year toward the end of the “season” !! And maybe I’ll lose another 15 or so pounds this season! (Unfortunately, I did gain back a little bit of what was lost last summer.)
Stay tuned – maybe I’ll get around to some pictures when the sunshine becomes even more consistent. If the weatherman can be trusted, after tomorrow’s showers — EIGHT DAYS of SUN! Woo Hoo!
