a garden update

This morning I finally spent some time in our garden.  You might recall from earlier this summer when I wrote about clearing half of my friend Nehemiah’s backyard for our garden.  We had big plans but much less time than was initially required, so we got off to a bit of a slow start, but lately things have been growing like crazy.  We’ve had a pretty cool summer too, so initial growth was slow.  Lately though, everything has been growing…including the weeds.  We’ve had very little time for weeding, and it has shown.

So, since Nehemiah and David have faithfully watered every day this summer, and my only participation thus far has been eating the produce, I decided to pull my weight today and do some weeding.  I spent the better part of the morning sitting in the sun and playing in the dirt, and three hours later, the garden was weed-free.

I came home with lettuce, spinach, carrots, and a sense of accomplishment.
