Yes, it’s finally March. Still somewhat soggy in our zone 5 area, and almost two feet of snow still hanging around, but spring is on the way. I’m hoping to see the lawn again in a few days.
For those of us that have been going through the garden catalogs and have redesigned our gardens at least a thousand times, there are some things we can do now to get ready so that when that first spring-like day arrives we’re not spending all our time getting ready.
Clean and sharpen all your garden tools.
As the snow melts, start cleaning up all the winter debris.
Pick up fallen branches and leaves from last year, cut dead wood from any shrubs or woody plants, cut back the ornamental grasses to 3″ and clean out any debris from garden bed areas.
And of course…..it’s time to start those indoor seeds!
