Fruits of Labor (Tackle-it Tuesday)

Today is Tuesday! And, that means, time for a tackle;

This week, my tackle is an easy one, but one that should have been completed last month! Today, warm weather permitting, I am going to de-weed under my fruit trees (orange, lemon, lime and fig) and get them fertilized for the coming warm weather. We've purchased "Sta-Green" fertilizer spikes, which are supposed to feed continuously for six months. My fig tree is already sprouting buds (its one of the few plants in the yard that actuallly looses its foliage in the winter, here), so its definately time for feeding!

Perhaps I will get my veggie garden turned and tilled this week, too...another yard job that has been put off long enough - time to tackle it!!

So...what are *YOU* tackling this week? Be sure to check out 5 minutes for mom, and see what everyone is working on this week; always a good source of inspiration....

Good luck! I'm assuming you're having decent enough weather to be out doors. Have fun!

Karen said...

That sounds like a wonderful Tackle!

Great tackle!

I am sooo jealous you have fruit trees!

We planted lemon, lime, grapefruit & orange trees last year. Can't wait until they actually bear fruit! Meanwhile... gotta plant my sunflower forest!

I want to put fruit trees in so badly but I have to wait until next year since we are barely putting up a back fence around our property this year.

For now rose bushes in the front will have to do.

Good luck on your tackle!
