Spring is coming on fast to the Southwest Backyard. Last week was windy and cool. This week in the 70’s and tomorrow 84. Time to start on spring chores. I need to roto till the garden (minus my Permaculture area). Cut the grass down really short. Clean out the pool and get the chlorine levels back up. Number one this week is to get everything trimmed, bushes vines and trees. I have finished the front yard and have taken care of the peach tree, fig and rose bushes. Earlier in this blog are photos of the peach and fig. Below are the after photos. Not sure I have a clue how to trim a rose bush but gave it my best shot.
