Too early to clean up garden in Zone 5 Chicago ?
I can avoid walking in it, I can just reach in from the outside and from stepping stones. I set it up so maintenance could be done without walking on the soil. I have a lot of sticks and matted leaves I'd like to get out. I can see crocuses trying to get through.
I wish I knew what the cut off point was, when is too early, so I could mark it on my calendar .
