On Second Thought
There should more to spring cleaning than washing the windows and dusting the books.
With all the contaminates we have in circulation 24/7…air quality is, or should be at the top of the spiffy list.~
This applies to your garden surroundings too: greenhouses, potting sheds and other areas that hold /contain tools, pots, machinery, etc. Pool house and outdoor showers/bathrooms are included in this list.
Containers, tools, and machinery should have been cleaned and stored out of the elements last fall…if they didn’t get done…certainly do this before you begin a new season.
Any rain barrels or water holding containers should be emptied and cleaned/sanitized. Rain-barrels have become very popular, but there are strict guidelines that must be followed unless you want bacteria and mosquitoes to become a regular inhabitant around your gardens.
Things that should be already planted or that can be planted indoors –in the greenhouse, or any area that gets plenty good light and heat: parsley, broccoli, cauliflower, eggplant, spring onions and lettuces …depending on where you are.
Seedlings will be ready to transfer to the garden in May.
Another option is to direct sow two weeks prior to the last frost date for your area.
