Ack! I was outside yesterday and the first crocuses are already blooming! I’m so far behind. I still have bulbs sitting in the storage room waiting to be put in the ground!
Even the best-laid plans can go haywire when you have to work around weather, work, and other obligations.
It looks like I’m already into the spring madness. Seems every year I get myself into the same pickle. I don’t manage to get all the cleanup and planting done in the fall that I need to, so then in the spring I end up getting caught trying to do the rest of the fall stuff and also prepare for spring planting!
How do you deal with it when you get behind in your gardening? Do you have any ideas on how to quickly get such things as cutting back, removing dead annuals, mulching, fall planting, etc., done? This is one thing I’ve never really gotten a “working formula” for and would appreciate you sharing below any comments about your successes, or questions about your problems with keeping a good gardening schedule.
