Take 2. Hopefully wordpress wont crash out on me this time.
Ok so it is not exactly time for yardwork but if it isn’t going to snow then it is time to start planning for summer! Sorry East Coast, we have had tons on high pressure over Northern Utah this winter. A couple of good storms early but bupkis since before Christmas.
So now it is time for us(the Mrs. that is) to start planning all of the projects I get to do over the summer. Ok I put many of them on myself. It was strange this morning to be outside at 24 degrees taking pictures of the yard to plan what need to be torn out or built up.
Thinking of planting a garden when there is still frost on the windshield is a bit odd as well. I have learned in the past that if we wait to plan and prepare, there is not enough time for things to grow before the season is over.
So I sit here and while not checking my email, twitter or my page vies on here, I have been looking up growing charts, planting guides, deck building tutorials, stone column building, and mailbox building so I can have something to do over the summer. I have been researching how to make the dog quit peeing on the kids slide and I gotta say if the pee stake doesn’t work, I am going to electrify the slide.
I still have much work to do that is left over from last fall. I was sick for the week before it snowed and is just now getting off of my lawn. There are many leaves that are still there as well as my roses that still have leaves on them. I was lucky that there were some strong winds that blew leaves around the bottom of the roses to keep them from freezing. I didn’t even get the rest of the detritus out of the garden. It is almost pathetic.
I am glad that spring is on the way though. I actually like to do yardwork. Now I have to go draw on the pictures I took this morning and figure out how to make those drawings into reality. I can’t wait!
If anyone wants to come over and clean up dog manure or haul dirt give me a buzz.
