Necessary and Needed

Necessary and Needed are always part of having a Garage and/or Garden!

So far the chore list this week sounds like I live out on a ranch not a 100 X 55 city lot!

I did Spring weed abatement in the back yard and put in a cover of clover, poppies and sweet alyssum to keep the weeds at bay.


Yesterday I cleared the front weeds, reseeded for Spring and amended the soil with topper.

Sorted a few tool drawers, sharpened the push mower blades and honed the hoes and clippers.

The windmill needed bolts tightened after a big wind and one replaced so that was done as well, then I moved the wagon to the shed (it is a Radio Flyer and the shed is of the garden variety!).

  1. AS needful garden you have, Janis. Loved your pictures of the moon eclipse and amazed that they were produced by a pocket sized camera – and you, of course!

  2. A reel mower! I have one.

  3. Necessary and needed, indeed!

  4. All that necessary work is here!! I have a windmill just like yours and really enjoy it. All that reseeding will payoff for sure.

  5. I like your weed avoidance scheme. I always enjoy seeing the first bright yellow early dandelions lining the roadsides but not so much when they pop over into my garden.
