I finally got into my garden. That sounds kind of like I was actually working the soil and tending vegetables, but I really mean I finally tackled the weedy mess.
It’s not fair. The weeds had a huge head start on me because of our mild winter. I just haven’t been able to get in there and clean it up. I’m still teaching for a couple more weeks, and every weekend has been rainy.
Today, I took a personal day from work (yes, we’re still waiting for Muffin to give birth), and I finally cleaned it off. I had to remove all the tomato cages.
I mowed it with the push mower because I figured I’d miss a few cages. I did, but at least I didn’t ruin a mower.
The birds were enjoying all that green stuff to sift through for good things to eat.
I still need to rip out the old raised bed.
I still need to reclaim the herb garden, but you can see it’s not just a wild place anymore.
I can see that there’s a tree and flowers and not just a weedy mess.
Look at how beautiful the peonies look now.
I love the lines of sunlight shining down!
Now I just need to get the garden tilled and planted, and it will really look like summer!
