Weeds... A false sense of security??

Category: Liberty's "Victory" Garden | Posted: Wed Jun 22, 2011 2:45 pm

From day one of Liberty's Victory Garden I have been going out and pulling weeds. This is a new plot of ground that my husband and I just turned and it had been severely neglected by the previous owners and covered in...you guessed it... weeds.

But after going out there day after day and pulling every little weed that makes an appearance, I noticed last night that there were fewer to pull. So I wonder, is this a victory in Liberty's Victory Garden? Or to carry the metaphor further, are the weeds simply regrouping and preparing for another assault?

In the meantime, I think I'll enjoy the weeding lull and continue going out there and raving to my hubby how well the corn is growing and speaking encouraging words to my summer squash. Although I don't think my "Give me zuchinni or give me mulch" speech will ever be covered in the history books.

I do find that you do find less weeds over time.

As long as you pull the weeds up before they seed you'll probably find that there are less to cope with as time goes on. Well that's my theory anyway. LOL
