I just got out in the garden, looked like my strawberries didn't fare to well this winter. I didn't get the strawbale I bought on them in time before the first snow, heavy and wet got EM.

The raspberries and grapes, gogi berries, etc remain to be seen.

Also all the leaves weren't off the trees before the snow set in this winter.

Even with my bad knee I need to get some cleanup done, so working on it today whike it's semi warm and sunny.
It's near to 40 , so best rake and mulch leaves whike the sun shines.

Out with the lawn mower, hope it starts, it's hard enough to start in the heat of summer, let alone cold chilly days.

Best get to it.

I think the rest of the garden will go fallow this summer as I should be having my knee replaced.

Sad.

Good luck with the knee!

Let your garden rest a yr.

You could could have a few vegetables or flowers in containers...no hoeing, heavy lifting, no kneeling. Cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, fresh herbs....pole beans, even squash and zucchini...eggplant does well in containers.
It'd keep your spirits up, picking your ripe cherry tomatoes for your summer salad...

Nothing is blooming. My garden was almost completely exposed for the very first time this year, then it snowed five inches last night. Bye spring, back to winter yet again. I am itching to see my daffodils come up. Maybe in another month.

I was stationed in Wilmington many years ago (1970-71) when I was in the US Coast Guard. I remember how beautiful the azaleas were in the spring and how much I liked the Azalea Festival.
