I checked out my compost bin to get some soil but found out that it is tooooo wet. What did I do wrong? I did not have this problem last year. Last spring, the rich compost was almost perfect. Is it because I was away for too long that I wasn't able to turn it? Can anyone help me??? Solution please. I hate not being able to use what's in there this year. I may have to buy a sack or two of garden soil.
Wow, my account is finally working after so many days of login in again and again. Thanks Rachel at customer service for fixing it. Now I can add to my blog.
Started on 2/21 pruning my clematis and just finished all 72 of them today 2/26. I was late on some varieties as they had grown tall already but I was heartless on some as they needed hard pruning. Also pruned the grapes and hibiscus and finished weeding as well. Planted also an aloe vera pup in one small terra cotta pot. I hope the lemon grass survived the winter and not die. I love trimming the leaves which I use for hot tea; the lemon grass really help me sleep good.

I was overseas for 5 weeks so I missed my pruning time for some of my clematis. Darn it, today, I was hoping to prune all clematis in containers. Just finished Lincoln Star and Serenata when it started to rain. Hope tomorrow will be sunny.
