Happy Earth Day!What is an awesome way to celebrate Earth Day? Working in the garden, of course. Taking care of plants that provide oxygen and help to clean the air. That's what I did with Xyra the other day. Yes, we celebrated a little early because today's weather report was not that good.
[A physical activity, like gardening, is a great way to reduce and relive stress after a long day of test taking.]
BeforeThese are three of the flower beds we worked. The other two had very little to be done.
DuringWe thought we had all our tools, but went to get a few more as the day progressed.
Don't forget you want to dress in clothes you don't mind getting dirty. I put on a tee shirt, overalls, and sturdy shoes. I pulled my hair back in a ponytail to keep it out of the way.
We raked and shoveled and trimmed. The best thing to do with yard waste is to start a compost bin or heap
Don't forget to take water breaks. You need to stay hydrated while gardening.
Speaking of water...if you plant or transplant anything, be sure to water it when you've finished.
AfterNow you can see the day lilies, ferns, hosta, irises, sedum, and tulips better. And they can see the sun better! They aren't much right now, but soon you won't see any dirt.
