Spring Putzing
I had tried to find an earlier blog of mine that had to do with "putzing". I know that it had to do with trying to start one job and then continuing to find other jobs cropping up as I plugged along. This Spring is no different. Much to my amusement, I found that as time and weather finally permitted me to start working on tasks outdoors, I discovered more jobs to do.

One night after work I started to pick up the fallen branches from the big birch in the backyard. It was then that I noticed that the first asparagus sprouts were coming up. Looking at these made me also see that all the raised garden beds needed to be turned over and that the garden itself had to be roto-tilled, along with the patch of garden I want to cultivate in the Valley Garden. When I came in from outside I saw the cardboard box containing the blueberry seedling that I had ordered sitting on the table.

Soooo....... during the next few evenings after work I got the roto-tiller from Belle-Soeur Susie and I ran it through the gardens that I will use this year. I also spaded over the raised beds and on a rainy evening planted the blueberry plant. Finally, one night last week I posted the following:

"Worked ten hours today, then, when I got home I fertilized the garden, planted snow peas, started some peat pots of pumpkins and squash, cleaned out last year's asparagus growth, put up some fencing for my blueberry seedling, and then sat for a few minutes and watched the Tree Sparrows work on the feeder. Now it's Kessler's and Leinenkugel's and waiting for the Castle Season Finale."

Spring Putzing. It is basically bouncing from one task to another, using it all as an excuse to enjoy being outdoors during Springtime. --Gary
