The Perfect Gardening Day

July 24th, 2008

I’m sure the perfect gardening day is different for everyone. My perfect day was yesterday. High of 75, overcast with rain the night before.

Why is this the perfect day?

The rain softens up the soil for weeding, so I spent the day weeding most of the flowerbeds.

75 degrees is perfect for me, I don’t mind it being hot (high 80’s is my limit if I can be in the shade), but I much prefer it to be in the 70’s. I always know it’s going to be a good day when I have to wear a sweatshirt for the first hour or so while working outside.

I must say, I hauled so many buckets of weeds I was able to fill up my compost bins with weeds, next year they’ll improve the soil in the same beds they were pulled from.
