the last weekend of april, we were faced with a scary task. weed the garden. dun dun dun! don't ask me why i kept putting it off. oh wait. . . yea, ask me! ask me! i have a good answer. it starts with an e and rhymes with benzo. yeah, it turns out having a four month old and finding time for weeding don't really mesh that well in my life. not that it wouldn't for you. it just was super duper tiring for me. sooooo, i put it off until i couldn't any longer (and jesse was home). he ended up doing the majority of it, but i probably pulled a good 30%. and when i wasn't i was feeding and tending to the goo.
i didn't get any pre-weeding photos (didn't want to lose any momentum, but i would have shared them with y'all). i did, however, snap a few shots at the end before we called it quits for the day.
this is the view at the gate from under the arbor. notice our baby seedling protection? my neighbor clued me into this method last year. i'll have to take a close up photo later and show you why it is genius.
crazy large rhubarb. anybody want some? seriously. i think we need to thin this bed out a bit. just let me know. . .
our new rosemary bought at the horticulture show the weekend before. last year's did not survive the winter on the windowsill.
whoa, tall asparagus alert. only two more years before we can eat them.
yay for spinach and onions! remember when we sowed these in march?
our bouncers have taken up protection duty.
the squirrels better not mess with these gnomes.
hello strawberries (and toes.) there are so many blossoms. gia is in charge of them, but we need to remind her not to pick the pretty flowers. :)
allright folks, we are almost caught up on the hart potager spring 2010 progress. um, i think that is a bit too wordy. so what. my blog.
we did planting today and will be out again tomorrow to finish up. i will show you what we were up to later. also, i am joining the kinder gardens contest over at the inadvertant farmer and will have an extra special post linking up to it soon.
fun stuff, right? i just wonder. . .will i ever have clean fingernails again?
