Yard work in January!

I was planning on getting out n our backyard and even the side gardens along the driveway yesterday (yes I kno its winter) but it really warm out so I thought I could get some things done out there that I forgot to do before winter officially arrived.

Well I was planning on putting things away, raking the garden areas (thinking of the sudden warm up) I thought the ground would be softer not frozen! Well it certainly was softer everything was covered in mud with big puddles, so getting things cleaned up and putting flower seeds down for the new season did not happen.

It reminded me of mud season when I lived in the mountain area of New Hampshire , Do you get mud season after winter?

The soil is pretty well saturated, and we are expecting rain. When it rains, it pours. [Remember that saying on every midnight blue cylindrical box of Morton's salt?

I have memories of that season especially when you walk through your yard no matter where you live you go squish, squish, squish with every step you take.

It's nice having a yard but I don't like maintaining the yard. I think that's also the reason my sons moved into an apartment. No yard work! I live with my sons.

Often times more than mud, spring often brings some flooding here in O hio
