As spring continues to wake up our gardens and stay at home orders are giving us extra time-we get the itch to start outdoor spring chores early. Gardening is a great way to get fresh air and exercise-while staying away from other humans. And if you’re like me, and you are following the fall philosophy of “less is more” to help biodiversity in your yard, your spring garden needs A LOT of love. Letting the leaves stay and the plants die back was the right thing to do, yet it all looks horrible right now and you are possibly getting raised eyebrows from neighbors. But before you jump into your garden-rake in hand like Xena (garden) warrior princess, take a deep breath and pause.
