The little garden gets choked with weeds over the winter. It seems like I have to create it all over again each year. Dig up the same things over and over. I am sure it is possible to keep the garden "clean" over the winter but not sure how. Maybe it's that newspaper thing that Sixty-five talked about a few years ago.
So out with the pitch fork. Hard work in my opinion. Out with the dandelions, grass and clover.
I cleared only a small section. Next time another small section. There are some plants that are perennials like the lupine you see on the left so I will have to hand pull the dandelions here. The trouble with that is I am likely to pull off the leaves, leaving the roots. Meanwhile, I need to think of some things to plant. Though not yet. SNOW is predicted for today and tomorrow, mostly in the very north. BRRR.
