several years ago (maybe 5 years even) i had this area that was getting full of grasses growing along the edge of the green manure patch. so i dug out what i could and piled it up thinking i would be able to go through the pile and remove the grass roots and then level it all back out.
then life happened and that pile remained until i could get back to it and of course it became a pile of grassy dirt instead.
yesterday i finally got it at least flattened and put back to where it was removed from and also filled in some other holes that were around there that should not have been there (we don't need any more hazards around here than we already have).
while i was back there i also cleaned up a few other things, but the whole garden could use being turned and replanted. i kinda doubt i'll have that much time this season either. there's still clumps of garlic growing through that space i'd like to remove - i try to get rid of a few feet each year so i can eventually have it gone.
then there are three projects sitting there waiting for me to get back to them (from last fall) and of course getting gardens ready for planting for this spring and such. if i'm lucky i get enough breaks in the weather to get a lot done in the spring or fall, but it isn't looking like that will happen this year. the next week is forecast for rain/snow/both pretty much every day.
i was going to get peas planted but i think with the weather forecast being cool and too wet i'll wait a week longer.
it was nice enough last week where i could finish up a patch inside the fence that was left last fall. that puts all of the fenced area back there in good shape for light weeding/planting.
