A hard day's work fertilizing in my garden

Friday was very spring-like in the Northeast and I just happened to have the day off!  I decided to do a little of what I love most - working in the garden.  The temperatures were in the low 60's and the sun was shining, however, the weathermen reported rain for the weekend.  I thought it would be a good idea to apply some of the springtime soil amendments so that the rain would help them seep into the soil.  I like to do this early in the spring to help the plants grow healthy leaves and roots.

Here I am prepared to apply bone meal to my raspberry bushes. I wear a mask because bone meal is so fine and dusty.
