Spring is here and it's time to get started. This isn't the prettiest part of gardening but it is necessary. I had lots of perennials return this year, but I also had more than a few pots in which I had planted annuals last year that I never got around to cleaning out. So I emptied them last weekend and started scrubbing. I don't use anything special, just a sponge, some antibacterial dishwashing liquid, and plenty of elbow grease.
Now that my pots are clean, I'm ready to start shopping and planting. Stay tuned.
