    I got a free load of wood chips from the tree service last week and had the driver dump it on a tarp in the driveway. Today, I moved half of it and now have a 4" thick mat of mulch around my raised bed garden. I made a 4' perimeter all round. I've declared war on dollar weed!!! It use to creep under my boarder and into the raise beds, not any more! I'll keep it at bay around the edge with a weed burner.

    I plant tomatoes March 1st here. Still have to worry about a possible frost until about March 21st though. I put a 1 gallon jug of water next to the tender seedlings for a sunlight heat sink until threat of frost is gone.

    IMG_1022.jpg IMG_1023.jpg IMG_1024.jpg IMG_1025.jpg IMG_1026.jpg Just way to pretty to stay inside 70 and Sunny. I decided to get myself outside and get my garden planted.
    Wife k\and neighbor kept checking on me since its only been 3 weeks from my Hospital stay. I assured everybody I was OK and can scoot around in the dirt just fine. I already had my Onions and Taters in the ground so today I planted
    3 kinds of tomatoes, 2 kinds of cucumbers, Squash and Zucchini
