Good morning, and I think it's the last blast.  Welcome to Saturday Morning Garden Blogging.

After a week of beautiful weather (and I include the overnight rain mid-week as "beautiful"), this weekend Denver is anticipating what could — nay, shall! — be the last blast of winter 2014.

Which is good, as I'm running behind… again.  The Mister's re-do of our garden shed stretched out to fill the week (and this weekend), so I don't have the wall-o-water's set up for the tender plants, and the kohlrabi and cauliflower are still in pots on the front porch, rather than in the ground of the veggie patch.

But the shed will be great: the Mister picked up a set of cabinets at the Habitat Store, so now it will be at least possible to keep it more organized.  He has the cabinets installed, and now just needs to put a counter onto the base.  Once that's done I can get the stuff that's currently spread across the veggie patch back into the shed.

Today I need to empty and move the compost tumbler, then mow the grass and give it a shot of fertilizer.  We're forecast to have cool, unsettled weather through mid-week and then… on to warm weather gardening!

That's what's happening here.  What's going on in your gardens?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
