Today I am so thankful for a weeded garden! When we returned from our trip and I took a look over the garden fence, this is what I saw…
Pretty pathetic. So many weeds I could not even make out some of the plants. We had some young men stay at our house while we gone and they watered and mowed (and kept Gypsy company). The grass and flowers looked great. When we left there wasn’t much going on in the garden. But it got real busy while we were gone, especially the weeds! Next year if I am gone in early spring, it will be worth paying the guys to also weed the garden!
I spent a few hours every morning last week weeding. I felt I was getting nowhere, fast. By the time I got one area looking good and moved on, more weeds came back. Yesterday morning before he went to work, Wally went out to the garden to help me. He works much faster and is much stronger. Just spending an hour out there together, I feel I have my garden back.
So much better don’t you think? It even looks like a garden! I keep walking back there just to have look! And I cut the first of my lettuce and spinach!
