We worked on preparing our garden for planting this weekend. Poor soil doesn't yield a good return on time and investment. We added rich soil.

Good morning William.  If it were left up to me I would cover the whole yard with rocks.

Hi William.  This is something that I know nothing about.  I thin I would be lost trying to take care of a yard or field in Minnesota.

This is great information for those living in North Branch, I like seeing stuff like this for my area, as I don't know when trees should be trimmed and such.

For those who like a perfect lawn it does pay to be on top of this, personally I like to keep the fertilizer on the garden.
