I had a landscaper comming to give a bid on another path but the snow covers everything.
We changed it to Monday hoping the warm weather over the weekend will melt so we can see where the path goes.

I started on my spring garden chores even thought I sure doesn't feelk like spring. Cleaned out my two 35 gallon ponds. Those fill with leaves each fall and winter and the longer you leave them in the spring, the more they rot and stink. It was so cold today there wasn't much stink. Hilarious!

I usually bail them out, clean and refill them but the hose is frozen so I couldn't refill. That will have to wait.

I also made a trench and planted my super sugar snap peas in ground. Was just going to get ready with the trench and leave the planting to a warmer day. But then last minute just decided to plant them cold or no cold. I still have another pea patch to plant and also the pots I use for peas to plant. I will just wait a bit on that.

Then I was tying back some larger branches on my roses next to my garage. Those are two big shrubs which must be about 8 feet tall by now and quide wide. I find them easier to deal with if I tie and prune before they leaf out.

Next up on the garden agenda is spring cleanup and the big spring rose prunning. After the prunning would be the fertilizing. Hopefully somewhere in there my spring bulbs will really start to pop.

You're a hardier soul than I, Rita. Good going!

With wind chills at 20 degrees for our warmest part of the day I've delved deeply into the spring cleaning issue...indoors. I was spending way too much time being frustrated with winter, now I figure I can get the deep cleaning of the house out of the way in time for the spring cleanup outdoors.

I'm on my way out to check on my seedlings ...I'm pretty sure their soil was frozen last night.
