I Swears it!

I swear I haven't forgotten about all of my faithful readers (all 2 of you!).  I've just been really busy - with the nice weather, everything has been leafing out and so I spent all of the weekend cleaning up yard detritus and pruning and planting.  And turning the compost bucket.  That...was really bad.  The problem with compost is that if you don't turn it, it goes from an aerobic system (read: doesn't smell bad) to an anaerobic system (read:  smells like poo when air is introduced).  And so now the back yard quite literally smells like shit.  And I'm going to have to go out there again tomorrow night and turn it some more...all to get it back to an aerobic system.

Not only did I get every plant pruned, I also managed to check off more of my backyard projects - moving plants and building some stairs...I really need to remember to take photos...

I just cleaned out one area and got nine bags of brush! It is a wonderful time to get a good start on getting all of the spring cleaning outside done! Happy Gardening...I'm one of the two!

Number Two, here! (And no, that is not a reference to poo, it's simply my place on your blog totem). You need to borrow my hens b/c they can turn a pile like nobody's business and they leave a little compost gold behind in the process :) Glad to read a post from you. Have fun in the garden this year!

I think there are more than two of us, even if we don't post all that often :)
