Spring came in unnoticed and the ground cover flourished
We've had constant rain and then snow and then rain again and today for the first time in a couple of weeks the sun came out and suddenly spring was here! Amazing! The change is dramatic and I take time to slog my way out into the garden to see if any of the plants had noticed spring's arrival.
The answer to that question is YES in all caps. Not only are the tiny spouts out with their true leaves, but the grass and the weeds have thrived. It's going to take a liot to get the lawnmower to cut through the grasses, but I'm happy because finally it seems that the warmth of the sun has made it through the clouds. And I'm also happy because the vetch I planted has grown nicely and although the grasses are high, the vetch is still going to help with nitrogen fixation when it is tilled under. I think that I'll have to weedeat the groundcover before trying to till it.
