At last, I'm getting to spend a bit of time in the garden. "Getting" is a bit strong; choosing is more appropriate. The weather has moderated; summer birds are arriving and the garden soil seems to be warming up. There is much to do; new cedar boards for the vegetable beds, redoing the garden that was in the construction zone last summer and continuing to move the trees and shrubs from the various nursery sites (typically vegetable beds) into more suitable and perhaps permanent homes. Probably don't need birch or white spruce in the vegie beds.
Also on the list is expanding the garden to the northwest of the woodshed. Had a trio of very useful sawyers out this winter making firewood out of downed trees and a few medium sized second growth so that there might be room for expansion.
Although the to do list is very long; have started some seeds; tomatoes (bloody butcher and red pear), american flag leeks, broccoli, romaine and buttercrunch lettuce, and basil.
