garden chores

 This is a La NiƱa year so our winter has been at times very warm and other times colder than normal.  With this kind of weather a good layer of mulch helps to keep the ground temperature more moderate.  Have you noticed the daffodils are coming up and in some areas forsythia is blooming....weird.  Don't forget to do your June garden chores and with the weather being so hot, it wouldn't hurt to start looking at the July and August chores.
