Back to home & garden

Last week of March 2019 (earlier earlier March pictures here)

Beds as they were through the winter, above, and with new soil, below
March 28: building up the raised beds.
We put new topsoil in the raised beds, using 16 bags from Home Depot that were delivered March 28.

Surprisingly, we found a lot of ice as we dug into the raised beds. We figure the levels will sink as that thaws.
Lots to see coming up now that we cleared the cut-up Christmas tree from the front bed.

March 29: The first pansies get set out. At the back, snowdrops,

and along the walkway, crocus about to bloom

We found the pickings very slim at the nursuries, but West End came through
