I’m amazed how many songs where I can replace party with garden and keep dancing to tomatoes and begonias because hooray for gardening season. Yes, gardening is a year-round endeavor, but I was ridiculously lazy all fall and winter with prepping. This is why spring fever exists though — to help me make up for it.
The gardening projects on my list:
I want to add window boxes to our backyard fort or maybe I’ll finally have enough room for watermelon vines if I hang them down from those windows since they took over my patio last year.
Since 2009, we’ve built raised edible gardens with the kids so we need to plan where to build, how many gardens and what to grow in the next few weeks. Oh, and actually do it.
We removed a beautiful, but dying, oak tree leaving behind a giant dirt spot for mourning that we should probably fix since it is in the front yard and has been five months.
I decided that I like hay better than dirt or moss in my front window boxes if only because during the fall and winter (and that point in the summer when all my window box flowers die) the hay looks nicer, so I need to figure out if anything can grow in hay or if I have to dig it out for a dirt center.
Of course, I’ll also be tending to my pots of herbs that survived the winter as well as trying to fix the section of my backyard where I attempted wildflowers last year. I really hope to end this summer with some flowers that are thriving because that would be a first.

Late Enough and The Home Depot are teaming up to do four DIY projects (five posts including this one) mostly because they could see our backyard fort from their store. What’s on my current gardening list is not necessarily the topics I’ll be blogging about in those upcoming posts. I am being compensated, which, considering for how long and how much my husband and I love doing this stuff, is awesome.
