I am going to head out to Home Depot and Lowe’s this morning and try to beat the crowds. I’m sure the place will be packed with people who just realized that Spring is really close at hand and their yards and gardens need some work to get ready for the spring, summer, and fall growing season. I’m sure the danger of frost is not gone yet, it is only the middle of February. I wouldn’t even think of planing anything as of yet, but there is a lot of work that needs to get done before even thinking of putting anything in the ground yet.
I have to buy some weed and seed, plus a spreader as mine has left my garage for some reason. I want to buy some bags of topsoil and spread it around the yard to fill in a few holes and trenches created by moles, digging dogs and water runoff. I need a new rake and some leather work gloves.I might splurge and buy a new chainsaw if they have something for a good price. And, of course, the seed packets are all out on the shelves that I will take a gander at. I think I will try to do some green beans and pumpkins this year, in addition to the green peppers and jalapeno that grew well last year.
