W is for Weeds
Weeds! I can't keep up with them, no matter how hard I try. Well, I could, I guess....if I spent all day out in the garden, but no can do!
Here's how the okra bed looked this morning....it's hard to tell the good plants from the weeds!
and now how it looks after using our favorite weeding tool, the hula hoe. Let me tell you, its a lot better then being on my knees weeding by hand all day. I only have to pull weeds by hand right around the actual plants. The chickens LOVE any and all of the weeds we can gather for them.
Tomorrow I'll mulch with hay around these plants. That'll buy me some time before I have to start all over again. Sigh.....
