Here in the Pacific Northwest we have had a relatively mild winter.
This morning, I decided to begin cleaning up my vegetable garden. The weeds are starting to take over and it is much easier to pull them when the ground is damp and the soil still loose. I pulled most of the weeds from the raised beds, and next I have to work on getting rid of the ones growing on the paths surrounding the beds.
The weeds growing in the gravel surrounding the raised beds and recycled car tires I grow veggies in, are relatively easy to pull, but I gave up after about an hour as it is still too cold to stay out for too long. My fingers were quite painful until they warmed up. I will do just a little cleanup as the weather permits. I am going to get the peas in the raised beds very soon, and place row covers over them.
And the Blueberries are starting to bud. I sure hope we don't get a severe cold snap as I am sure the blueberries will not survive.
Now! what to do about this little guy/gal. It really is the cutest , most friendly little creature, but it has made a home in my fenced front garden. Yes I did say fenced, a fence which is two feet tall surrounds the flower garden and this is the only rabbit which has jumped over the fence easy as you please. I have sprayed, on several occasions, Liquid fence around the perimeter of the garden and also all over the plants. The rabbit took off the first time the spray came near it, but it is there back inside the fence every morning. I guess I will just have to get the spray out and chase it away every time I see it. Perhaps in this way I can at least discourage it from being inside the fence.
