Digging in the Dirt

No, this is not a post about Peter Gabriel. The weather is finally turning nice and Springy, so I though I would get a jump on cleaning up the garden. I like this time of year because I can get down on my hands and knees and really pull up weeds at the roots without worrying about ants or hot ground. I had let some Bermuda grass establish itself in the xeriscape portion of the patio. That shit is a bitch to pull up! It was so nice and sunny on Saturday that I decided to become Shirtless Fat Guy to catch some cancer and soak up the UV and vitamin D. Spring Fever activate! It was nice to see the spearmint survived yet another year. Mint julep time! It looks like only the basil didn't survive. The catnip is even flowering already. Fling loves to roll around in it. I'll enjoy the weed-free garden for as long as I can. I'm sure I'll be surrendering to the grass and weeds by about July.
