It was a drizzly evening a few nights ago, overcast and cool, so I decided to take advantage of the weather and weed my garden. My cucumbers and watermelon were buried.
It’s pretty overgrown, but one bed was especially bad.
I sat on our new cinder block frames (just the right height to sit and weed!), reached in, pulled a plant…
And out popped a radish.
Ya’ll, I didn’t plant radishes this year.
I pulled all of them and set them aside for my mom and moved on. Mom loves radishes!
Pulled a plant…
Found a carrot. I haven’t planted carrots in several years.
A parsnip. It’s been at LEAST three years since I’ve planted any.
My garden is just going at it this year!
I was more careful in what I pulled, focusing on what I KNEW was a weed. I found dill all over. I planted it in one of my beds, but the squirrels dug it up. So now I have dill everywhere except in my bed.
Such is mother nature! I’m glad everything is growing well. *smile*
