So, for me, that means that it's time to look around and see what needs doing NOW, before my 'free' time becomes greatly limited. Today, that meant sweeping out the shed and restoring it to a semblance of order, and then mowing the scrabbly areas of the backyard and most of the front yard.
But before mowing the front, I got my 6 tomato plants put into the area of my garden that I re-tilled this week.
THEN when I mowed the front yard, I used the grasscatcher, and spread the clippings around each tomato plant in hopes of keeping the weeds down. I've never tried this method at the BEGINNING of the planting season, so I hope I have success. Last year, I only used clippings during the drought season to keep in the moisture when I watered the garden areas.
