A serious amount of my time has been spent in the garden recently. We don't use any weed killer (or any chemicals, for that matter) in the yard & garden, so there are *always* weeds to pull. I'll never be able to keep up with them, but I make an attempt pretty much daily.
There is a pay off for all of this work. Despite the fact that it is only May, we've already eaten several salads from the garden. I just threw an old packet of seeds into an old flower box with some fresh potting soil and it went crazy! The seeds were at least two years old, so I wasn't even sure they would germinate -- ha!
Today I picked the first few ripe strawberries -- the first of many. There are too many green and pink berries to count, and I think I may even have enough to make jam next week.
So, that's were I've been.
