Over at Owlhaven there is a post on the most beautiful garden in America. It is her very own. So I went out to take a look at mine and I am sure I heard it crying. It was very, very sad. Weeds so thick it was hard to find the "real" plants. So I took some picture and sent them to Mary at Owlhaven. She sent back some encouragement that it was not to late for my plants. So feeling some conviction I went out to fight for my garden. After one hour of striaght work I am please with what I accomplished. The garden is feeling much better now. It made me promise to come back again tomorrow.
AFTER: Squash and watermelon. The plant closest to you I thought I had lost them all. What a surprise to find one still alive.
DS helped dig up the mean deep rooted weeds.
AFTER: My tomoato plants. Still some work to be done there.
Here is the before of my green pepper plant. Tomorrow I will make her happy.
While I was working the kids played in the pool.
