Limited garden time and relatively small weather windows (times when it's not raining or sopping wet) means that my spring garden cleaning happens a little differently this year.
Usually it's chop or pull or prune, then rake, pick up, and trek to the compost pile. Not this year though.
This year it's been mostly chop, then come back the next day (or longer) and pick up the refuse. This was most apparent yesterday when I tackled the two largest patches of groundcover bamboos, a dozen or so smaller ornamental grasses, and my three Miscanthus -- including the big one.
Exhausting! So raking will have to happen some other day.
I was thinking it would be today, but another thunderstorm just came through.
There are still large bamboo culms that need to be carried back to the compost pile too...
One bright side of putting it all on the compost pile when dripping wet: much faster decomposition!
Is the weather causing your springtime gardening to stray from your plan too?
