Four plants now are ready to sprout in the new section of our hourglass front-yard garden in our Syracuse city neighborhood of Eastwood, the portion I dug out last fall.
My dear wife Karen and I teamed this glorious and sunny Sunday to dig in the dirt.
I used a spade to make holes for the three plants we’s purchased two weeks past at our spring favorite, Chuck Hafner’s Garden Center. In went two rose bushes and a rhododendron.
Karen used the hand spade to transplant a portion of a climbing vine that was here ascending the olive tree that has since toppled when we moved in a decade ago.
We scattered some Miracle Gro around the roots, put soil back into the holes and admired our work.
And then …
I had to take another shot of some dirty work somebody else accomplished in front of our house in the last day or two. I spotted the mess Saturday around dinner time.
Remember that muddy pile of old sod I deposited there for city haulers to take away for recycling?
Well, the schedule was not kept this past week.
So somebody decided they just had to drive their vehicle — looks like truck tires to me — across that pile of muddy sod and spread it around pretty good.
Here’s the link to the story about and photo of the pile of mud pre-tire-track.
Have you done any spring planting yet? Has somebody done something with a car around your house or apartment that’s made you think why, why, why?
