The move went well and all is well here in zone 8b or 9. Completely different soil and weather patterns than I'm used to but it's a large enough city and there's work to be done :-)

You should be thinking about:
- what to grow this spring and summer
- when are you going to plant
- tilling under the hairy vetch and clover I'm SURE you planted last fall
- seeing how your compost is coming along

If you haven't had a soil test completed by your county extension agent, get one and amend soil as specified. This is a no-brainer and the single best thing you can do to ensure garden success.

I will miss my Paw Paw trees, my Artic Kiwi, blueberries, and great soil I had created in the garden. And the herbs, oh yeah. If you've never cooked with fresh herbs, go to the back of your cooking class and take a knee.

Comment on this post to let me know what YOU are doing to prepare for the summer.
