Lovely day, warm in the sun, cold in the shadows. Found this crocus hiding in the lawn. Worked on finishing clean-up in upper greenhouse. I am thinking of planting some alfalfa under the side bench where it is difficult to work the soil. I have grown tomatoes, squash, basil, and most recently lettuce under there, but as I said, it is difficult to work. I think if the alfalfa grew it might crowd out the weeds that want to be there, add nitrogen, and look pretty! I could cut and use the grass for mulch if it got that far. Worked on a row of raspberries outside that were in the full sun. Felt good to get going on them. There are five rows to do, so most of one is a great start! I think we are in for a change in our weather, so good thing to take advantage of this beautiful day. Soon I need to work on the asparagus bed, but it was not nearly so sunny and warm where it is.
