This year, quite honestly, I've let things go a bit. Part of the problem is that it's getting increasingly difficult to haul my growing belly around the yard - particularly when it comes to weeding and mulching and doing bendy-over kinds of things.
The other problem is that the weather has completely sucked. Rain, rain, rain, and more rain. Cold rain. Cold gray days that have made all of my plants about a month behind last year's schedule. So my garden looks rather sad. Growing and wild with weeds, but sad. So I'm accepting the less-than-desirable state of things, and crossing my fingers that summer (or at least our usual spring) gets here soon.
