Last week we had several days of hard rain, followed by an absolutely glorious weekend. It was cool, breezy and sunny, and with my garden soil still very moist from all the rain, an excellent opportunity to get down in the dirt and get some weeding done. I spent all day Saturday and Sunday at the task, and I'm darn proud of what I accomplished. This is absolutely the most weedless - and grassless - that I have ever been. I hope I'm able to keep at it after each big rain, so I won't get so far behind again.
Some of my crops have already come and gone, peas and spinach and all the big heads of broccoli, though the plants are still putting off side shoots. I have a big row of potatoes, and the chard is well and thriving. I have a number of beautiful Chinese cabbages, sweet potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, squashes and beans, cucumber and melons, and some corn, among other things.
Anyway, here it is, in all its glory.
