We spent a couple of hours outside today working on clearing out the front gardens of leaves we used as mulch in the fall. While it is only the end of February, despite the 70 degree weather the last few days, we still have a good 6 weeks or more of “winter” left to come and a good chance that we’ll have some frosts if not a few days of below freezing temps that could freeze the ground. We’ll have to monitor the temperatures and cover tender plants when needed.
Here are a few of the other beds on the front steps we cleared up today (these are mostly before pictures as I didn’t get after shots due to my back going into spasm despite my brace and what I thought was a safe working position.)
