Garden Gleanings - MorePosted Friday, March 21, 2008, at 6:54 PM
What a day. By noon I had to stop work and head outside. It was warm enough to go shirtless and enjoy the sun, cut some more wood, cut the grass, clean the pond pump screen, pull watercress and put out the first hummingbird feeder.
Has anyone seen a hummer yet? I may be a little early, but the honeybees will find it and that will be good too. There is no harm in getting ready anyway.
Another job was watering the houseplants. Folks, when it takes over an hour to water the plants and works up a sweat, it is time to get rid of some plants.
Besides bringing some aloe cuttings and more watercress, I think I am going to bring some full-fledged plants to our next gardening meeting. Need to meet us at the Hong Kong restaurant next Friday at 6:30.
