As Buffalo, New York digs out from 7' (seven feet) of snow and prepares for rain and flooding, I have been preparing Next Year, the garden for spring 2015.
There have been leaves to rake.
Spirea which was long past due on a good hard pruning.
Our vegetable garden is due for a double dig and addition of compost.
Perennials to deadhead.
and bulbs to be planted.
One way I try to work off some of the Thanksgiving calories is fall gardening. I'm sure I consume many more calories than I burn. One of my favorite gardening activities is planting spring bulbs. Grandmother Bessie would say "they won't bloom in the package." I sure hope my gardening legs hold out for all the bulbs I have purchased which need to be planted.
