Trimming Our Garden Borders
Well Casey and I had planned a musky fishing trip for today but after Casey checked out the weather conditions for next week we decided it might be better to hold off until Monday.
Today was going to start at minus 10C and only go up to about 3C but Monday is looking like double digit temps on the plus side. I was actually happy he called to see if I wanted to change dates as I take heart meds that thins my blood and makes me feel the cold so much sooner than I used to.
When I took our pit bull Honey out at 5:30 this morning she didn’t take long doing her business and to start barking to come back in. I didn’t wait outside with her either. It was a chilly morning.
Trimming The Grass Back From Our Garden Beds
Rather than sitting here thinking about the fishing we didn’t do I decided it was better to turn my thoughts to my trusty garden spade and the grass that has grown from the edges of our gardens into them.
It’s great that the ground hasn’t frozen yet which makes this task a lot easier and faster. Hopefully this year I do a better job at keep those lines straight around our vegetable garden.
We have a couple of flower beds that have edges in need of trimming but we are still building and shaping these. Once we get them to the size and shape we have in mind I would like to put a nice border around them so they will be easier to maintain.
For the time being we will continue to use the garden spade to trim the edges and keep them clean looking but once we have the veggie garden dug up to about 10×20 feet I plan to put a fence with an arbour around it. Then we will have the idea spot to put the patio swing or garden bench Judy and Jean gave us, which are sitting in the garage waiting for that spot.
