Enter the Washington Post's Gardening Calendar.
For August, the tasks at hand are:
- Order spring bulbs
I've looked longingly at the bulbs available at Dutch Gardens. Especially the double daffodils...
- Conduct lawn soil test
This is a "husband task" as the lawn is his baby.
- Cut back perennials/freshen garden
Hmph. Maybe I'll do that next weekend. Most of my perennials are still looking OK. Plus, by then, I think I'll be able to remove some spent tomato plants.
- Pull up clumps of crabgrass
Done! Kinda. The husband started to do this, but then got stung by a bee. Sooo...
