to get heavy stuff done, then come in for
siesta and putter around the rest of the day.
we did finally have some good rain that helped
soften up the ground where i'm digging out the
ditchgrass (very large rooted stuff that finds
clay no problem to colonize). it will be a
week before i finish this project. one large
patch and another smaller one. some day i
really need to get a barrier in place... i
keep telling myself... i wish i had enough
cooler weather and more rains so i could get
through the entire patch and hunt down all
the garlic and other grasses out of there.
other things planted are coming along well.
tomatoes, peppers are loving the sunshine and
warmth. cucumbers flowering. onions growing.
i did get some weeding done yesterday in the
north garden. the lowest spot has always had
plantains (rabbits and wormies love 'em) so
each year i have to get some out of there, but
the creeping jenny is gradually filling in.
this round of weeding took only a few hours
while the first round a month ago took me several
sessions to finish. so that is progress. and
the creeping jenny is blooming so that looks
nice too with the yellow flowers.
i have to get some strawberries picked. not
too many left, but enough.
