A whole lot of this...

... has been going on every evening this week. With Spring's arrival (finally) evening gardening is such a joy and a reward.

How do we know Spring has arrived ? we can hear these in the evening. And yesterday someone told me they saw a bunch of bees. All this kinda gives me a ''Spring'' in my step !

Keep well and enjoy your day tomorrow.

Ah gardening, I can almost smell the earth.

Did some cleaning of the garden today myself. I would really like some raised beds like yours. What size are your beds and are they easily managed -- I am always worried my short arms won't be able to reach into the center of my beds.

Colleen - I am up to 8 raised beds. I love this way of gardening. So much easier for pest and weed control. I only have one really long bed but it's narrow and all my other ones are smaller in size so I have no problem at all reaching from all sides.

Barb - This year I really have to work on increasing my soil nutrients. We already have a head start - we topped off all 8 beds with seaweed last Fall.
