Lessons in Weeding
This isn't a lesson in how to weed. It's lessons I've learned in a very short time (three weeks) of working in a garden. I would assume that many of these lessons will have you seasoned gardeners nodding your heads and saying, "Yep, know that one."
First off, the last real day I was able to spend in my garden was Sunday. Working Mon-Wed has given me only a little time here and there. I'm off for the next four days and the first thing I did when I woke up this morning was run out to see how the "kids" were doing. I spent the next hour weeding. While I was weeding my mind started making a list. Five quick thoughts came to mind.
Here they are:
1) I think weeds would survive a global nuclear event, with a volcano and a blizzard thrown in.
2) Don't turn your back. Weeds watch for that and that's when they pop up.
3) Fingernail polish is a girl's best friend -- it hides the dirt.
4) I now understand why my husband said, "After we plant, you're on your own."
5) Dang it, that wasn't a weed!

As we all know, it's a good idea to hoe between rows of vegetables to keep the weeds down. I used to put the garden line down between the markers to guide me - until I accidentally put the line between the wrong markers and hoed right through the middle of a row of carrots!
