There is so much that needs to be tended to out in the garden it's making me crazy. I don't like a messy garden and if you could see mine up close and personal right now, you'd know why I'm cranky.
The only time I've spent out there for what seems like an eon is to harvest veggies and fruit and bring them inside for fresh eating or mostly processing.
No one has been deadheading flowers, staking up overgrown plants, replanting salad greens, pulling out spent pea vines, watering, controlling rampaging squash vines, or (Eeeeeeek!) weeding.
This bed is supposed to be replanted in salad greens. But what is growing here? Weeds, just WEEDS. Sigh.
The lawn could now qualify as a wild life prairie habitat and weed whipping will have to be accomplished with a controlled burn.
And on the inside housekeeping scene, did I mention I'm raising fruit flies in the kitchen for fun and profit?
