Cleaning up

There's nothing like a month of enforced neglect to get a gardener worried. I'm not a fussy gardener at all; in truth, I quite like an exuberant and prolific garden, whether it be in borders, meadows, woodland plantings, or my vegetable garden.

But weedy beds and declining vegetables are not a happy sight. I worked on vegetables yesterday for my allotted hour or so (it'll be nice to get back to normal!)

So I was glad to be able to get out this morning and clean up a primary perennial border. It was full of crabgrass (yuck), but thankfully easy to pull, and various other pesky weeds.

Some judicious editing, and it was a good effort, even though it was about all I could manage.

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
