The warmer weather has inspired me to start preparing my vegetable garden. I hoed and removed last season's left over leeks and dried stocks of purple cornflower. I had left the flower stocks up for the winter to give the finches something to eat. Most of the seed cones had been picked clean.
I got my dogs' attention when I scattered some organic blood meal to add nitrogen to the soil. One tried to eat the dirt. By the time I plant in late May, the dogs won't be so interested in this plot.
