Spring Checklist

I’ve compiled a short list that can get you started.  It is going to be a beautiful week and I plan on getting outside myself and hopefully checking off a one or two of the items.  It’s the winter cleanup outside around the house that is the most dreaded, and that’ll come first for me.  On the plus side, my boys Samuel and Elliott are having a blast being out in the fresh air. 

             2011 Spring Gardening To Do List
*Start planning  / gathering ideas for your container gardening
*Start planning the layout of your vegetable garden
*Consider raised bed gardening, especially in wet areas
*Clean up winter debris from around all plants
*Prune trees and summer blooming shrubs
*Plant summer blooming bulbs
*Cut back ornamental grasses to approx. 4″
*Remember to apply dormant oil sprays to your fruit trees while they are dormant ( before any buds open up )
As a side note, the concert this weekend was a huge success!  Everyone had a wonderful time.  I wasn’t able to make it (out working at my day job), and so I’m going to find out more details that I can pass along to you, hopefully with some pictures as well.
