Also, last year I didn't even clean the garden or plant it. A friend of mine cleared all the dead leaves and plants and my brother planted the garden with various seeds and starter plants I bought. The birds unfortunately demolished and ate everything that did grow. It seemed they were rather more destructive last year than any other year. I'm not sure why. Though I didn't get to eat anything from the garden, I am glad that at least the birds got what they need. This year I will try again but I hope to eat the fruit of the labour.
I have my little kitchen compost ready so I can store vegetable and fruit scraps in there before it gets added to the larger compost bin on the patio.

I will have to buy a few perennial flowering plants. Other than that I will primarily plant vegetables. I will also have to use some kind of netting to protect the seeds and plants from being eaten before they have a chance to grow.
|These are supposed to be some kind of spring flowers. I haven't actually "tidied up" the garden this Spring as it has been too cold but I hope to do it soon.|
| This past weekend of sunshine finally brought out the tree blossoms.|
