On a beautiful couple of days before all of this rain, we spent hours and hours weeding the gardens. We started up in the upper garden with the lettuce, onions, and carrots and then moved to the lower garden to save the beets, cabbage, and kale. Linda came out to help for a few hours and Jaxxy hung out for a while too!
We filled this cart (7 cubic feet) several times - with weeds! At least its good for the compost.
It is amazing how much bigger and healthier everything is when it's not competing with all of those weeds. Between weeding and all the rain, some things appear to have doubled in size within a few days. It's unbelievable!
