Old sawdust

Here I'm getting some old sawdust to add to my garden soil.

I've got a bag of sawdust on the bike and ready to go.

I just spread the sawdust around the rhubarb and work it in later.Notice the frost on the rhubarb this morning May 29 and we'll have more yet.

Strawberry plants.

Another homemade garden tool.

I made a couple of these digging tools last year.They were made from leaf springs from an old car.I use this tool all the time in the garden, the combination  of light weight and narrow blade makes it easy to use.It's also a good way to reuse and recycle .

Flowers and summertime

The ultimate flower song ,peace friends and to those who are, happy gardening.

Still waiting for summer.

Saturday was sunny and warm so I gave my strawberry plants a dressing of compost and got to thinking about gardening again.

Today Monday this ,wet snow, that'll dampen your spirits just a little.
