I couldn't wait till Tuesday to take the recycling over; in the bin there were several very large round heavy-duty cardboard containers that used to contain rolls of wire (instead of spooling it). I couldn't think of anything I'd do with them or I'd have brought one or more home. Gardening in them? They'd fall apart. Put them in the ground? The metal rims would be in the ground later. Nope. Someone else may find a use before they're buried in the bins. Not bringing it home to begin with is half the battle.
Starting the new compost pile for the year and digging out the remainder of the compost from a pile a couple of years ago. The piles and large bin need attention, combine it all or pull out the sticks that aren't breaking down and see what's left.
This morning I started weeding the garden bed where I'll put in the onions, and I'll put the potatoes in a separate spot that was dug up late enough last fall it will be easy to work on now. The good thing about starting the garden this year is that I don't need to wait till next weekend to finish what I start today since all week is forecast to be perfect for yard work. I'm doing some contract work but it isn't set hours and it's only 10-15 hours a week.
