This past weekend was fairly mild, in the 50-60’s. Sunday was exceptionally nice. So, what’s a person to do with weather like that….. WEED!!!! I’m not sure why I have so many weeds. They’re these tiny little grassy, pesty, weeds that spread like crazy.
I am determined to be rid of them. ALL. I don’t like to use pesticides, so I am humbly on my knees, exterminating them one by one. See the progress?
Of course, the only problem with this method is you’re never done!!
So, I planted my English peas, maestro variety, on February 7th…….. and heeeere they are, along with some parsley which is doing unexpectedly well.
Yes, I know there is a dowel lying on the ground between the rows. (I am going to place a nylon trellis there for the peas to climb. It’s kind of like a volleyball or tennis net . The company says it will be shipped March 1st. ) I can’t wait to eat peas!!!!!
So, I guess you saw the yellow jonquils. I bought these at the grocery store last year in full bloom. No reason, just because they were beautiful. When they finished blooming, I planted them in the yard and forgot about them until now. (sigh) This is why I love gardening.
So, here are a few more early Spring arrivals in my garden.
So, get out there and weed people, it is SO worth it.
