The New To-Do in the Dirt List

To do is to be. 

To be is to do. 


  • Rock garden has its fun rocks (the big ones) in it again
  • Mock cherry tree suckers lopped off
  • Dead mums from last fall cut down (they are so hardy it’s snowing before they die)
  • Peat covers the area destined for asparagus
  • The mess near the small compost bin has been raked and redeposited in the other compost bin (dang raccoon)
  • Tiny tomato seedlings are in better pots now
  • Tiny tomato seedlings suffered transplant shock and too-cool windy weather. Thank goodness, the peppers are fine.
  • Mini greenhouse shelves are on deck (that means they’re outside, people, not waiting to bat)
  • Mini greenhouse shelves are still on the deck, but all the little seedlings are in the house until the risk of snow goes away. Really.
  • Found the box of fossil samples and distributed them artistically in the rock garden!

To Do:

  • Turn soil
  • Mix in suitable compost  I might wait until fall for these two. When the weather is finally suitable, going no-till might be a better use of my time.
  • Spread topsoil over peat for asparagus
  • Pick up boards-slash-stepping stone paths and re-arrange them
  • Create the new “floor plan!”
  • Find any stray rock collections in the basement (I know of at least one box) and add to rock garden. See above.

Do-be-do-be-do! And on we go!
