The weeds. They’re back!
And Lucy the trouble Puggle and I are on a mission to get them all pulled over the next week and to sprinkle our yearly dose of Casoron around the hedges before they really start coming in. I know a lot of people don’t like to use the stuff, but in my 20+ years of gardening it’s the only chemical I’ve found that truly works at getting rid of weeds for an entire year at a time. All you’ve got to do is pull up ALL the weeds you can spy in the spring, lay down the Caseron and you’re set.
We don’t use it anywhere near where we’ve planted vegetables, so I feel fine using it in the backyard around the hedges and on the hillside.
Yesterday we cleaned up the lower border. Today and tomorrow, with a little luck we’ll get all the weeds pulled in the upper border and then my weeding for the year is done.
In other news, the daylilies are starting to poke through the soil.
And the slug babies are back as well.
Spring. It’s right around the corner. I guess that means I need to get out there and clean the yard up. 😉 What’s the weather like in your neck of the woods these days? Do you have snow on the ground, are you diggin in the dirt yet? I don’t know about you, but I am itching’ to plant something.
