It can’t be April yet—I’m not even done my checklist for March! (Or February or January…) The desk looks like a Post-It® factory exploded so (way) past time to organize the organizing.
Here’s my current To Do List:
–Order organic seed potatoes and more Smart Bags from Wood Prairie Farm. ✔
–Replace soil in planters post-Super Storm Sandy.
–Add at least two new raised beds. (Less lawn, less mowing!) Ordered ✔
–Move hay bales and consider converting to above-ground planters.
–Research then possibly enhance/replace existing watering system.
–Add bedding from winter pen to ornamental beds, work into soil. In process ✔
–Plant spring seeds; tent as needed. Seeds bought/ordered ✔
–Rake pine chips and needles from lawn; re-seed and protect from birds. (That means you, too, duckies!)
–Lay out new pumpkin bed with better air circulation, more space to spread.
Probably the most time-consuming task still before me: installing the new in-ground pool with Jacuzzi and fly-up bar for migrating waterfowl. Each feathered visitor will be offered Wi-Fi headsets so they can re-calibrate their GPS systems before heading back to the jet stream. Pretty cushy, right?*
