After a really bizarre unnervingly hot day-- 87 degrees, I'm told-- we had some thunderstorms and are back to more normal 60ish weather. I watered most things yesterday since I worried about them leafing out in the heat and some of them are meant to be transplanted. I am worried of course also that early May transplant will decimate my big witch hazels and lovely serviceberry... oi. There's supposed to be more rain coming.
On to the to-dos:
- edge beds
- cut grass front
more weeding (have been virtuous so far) transplant Heritage rose to S bed
- get spade sharpened
- divide some stuff-- daisies, hosta, catmint
- take Appalachian Trail walk and try to catch some bluebells
rejoice at the decent smattering of little daffs in the front beds be annoyed I didn't seem to plant more Angelique tulips take pictures so I can fill in early blooming bits for next year
- take up rocks and stack them out of the way
- rent a brush cutter for N of fence
- plant catmint seeds-- think I will raise them on the porch, it's warm enough
ditto jupiter's beard Call Oregon Trail groundcovers-- I went through the online order process Sunday but I have a sinking feeling it never went through :(-- Update-- I called and it did go through. Next couple days, yay! Call township and ask where the hell is my mulch. More pleasantly than that, of course.Not till next week, grrrr. email community garden friend and talk about ornamental border email landscape arch and advise him of gate size and also slip in my worries about planting early May
- plan new plantings carefully so that I don't fall victim to buying "trial plants" impulsively-- make a list and check it twice!
That should do it.
