Here in Wynola we found 12" of rain in five days of looking at our rain gauge, and all 12" soaked into the ground. Ponds are full and the land is bursting with green growing things. This is a very optimistic time. It's a good time to live in the country where we can witness each new change in the plants day by day. As much as I thoroughly enjoy rainy days and as much as I like to see the variety of greens that pop up in my yard; I know it's time to get the mower and weed whacker tuned It's time to sharpen the shovels and sandpaper all of the wooden tool handles, i The amount of rain we received after all the drought years is encouraging plants to sprout and they will sprout in hugp numbers and sizes as fast as they can break through the ground an~ find sunshine. Look for places to set up compost bins because they wlll come in very handy as weeds get pulled and need a place to decompose. This year, like all years, we all need to be vigilant in knocking down the weeds. Mid April will probably start the beginning of fire season. Lest we forget; the season of sunshine and dry days is now called Wild Fire Season. No more seasons for minor fires in the western US. We all need to do our best to keep ourselves and our neighbors safe from fire. I know that it's difficult to look out at our beautiful green yards and imagine them burning. I know that it's not even imaginable to look at so many narcissus blooming so early and think about how every plant in our yards will dry out in such a short time. Now is the time for the work to begin. I have plenty of projects that I would like to begin now. Dividing my irises before they get too choked with wild grass roots is a good project while the dirt is still moist from the recent rains When I dig them up I know that I can get lots of grass roots out from around my iris roots. They will be healthier and happier if I can get them divided and replanted in looser, weed free soil. I like to dig the grass roots away from my concrete driveway too. I create a narrow ditch that will catch runoff from summer rains and guide the water back to my plants and help to maintain solid concrete that doesn't get cracked from the pressure of roots. While the dirt is still damp, hoping it's still damp; this is a good time to dig basins around trees. Basins should be as wide as the limbs stretch on trees If the tree limbs create shade two feet out from the tree trunk, then the basin should be dug that far out. Dig it to what is called the drip line. The drip line is the farthest from the tree that water will drip from the limbs and leaves of that tree. If you aren't energetic enough to dig up that much ground around trees, or if you just don't have enough time to make wonderful large basins, at least dig a circle of about a 12" radius of bare dirt around each tree. Creating a small bare dirt area around each tree helps to keep mowers and weed whackers from injuring trees and it helps create a fuel free zone around pines and cedars that fire could otherwise climb up. After the devastation of the 2003 Cedar Fire, the Wildfires of 2007 and all of the fires that we have endured in between; we all need to do our best to make our yards as clean as we possibly can. Some of us can prevent the next major fire from burning our precious belongings; others can slow it down by cleaning our yards and keeping them clean. In 2003 my son Thomas and I raked debris into piles away from our house and though the Cedar Fire came within five feet of our house, it didn't burn it. I think abeL.that every year when I'd rather do something other than raking my yard. I like to spend some time in my yard accomplishing something every day. This past year rve had every excuse not to work in my yard because the temperature is too hot or too cold, the day is too windy or the rain too plentiful. My excuses have run out and I can now refill the compost bins that I built last year. Every weed that I pull before it seeds is a victory Every weed that gets mowed or whacked before it can produce seeds is also a victory for the Side of clean, debris free yards. All of the plant debris that I rake anti remove can hold thousands of weed seeds that won't get to sprout. That's a huge victory. Spring is a great time of year for making plans to create or maintain the yards we want to look at and enjoy, Clean yards are wonderful and they are so much safer than yards that are full of tall grasses, dead weeds and low tree limbs. As we look toward spring, we have so much to enjoy. Our air is clean, the sky is a vivid blue and the entire world looks new and refreshed. Now all I need is the time and the energy to work on all of my projects. These are my thoughts.
