I have no idea what I'm doing.. trouncing around my "weed patch" in my aerobics shoes and trying to figure out what is a weed and what is a plant.
Let me back up. I have no green thumbs or green anything. My industrious kids know their mother all too well. They know I frequently will pay high prices for good quality produce, so they decided to start a garden. I told them IF they did the work, I'd pay for the produce.
So, the three middle ones got down and dirty and digging. They actually planted a few things. When we left for our vacation, NOTHING had shown up yet. When we got home, EVERYTHING was up.. up to about 3 feet and completely filled in.
The kids put up their hands in discouragement. I felt sorry for them and decided to do some time. I had no idea what a weed looked like, but I'm sure that no one would eat those prickly things --plant or not. After a few days of pulling prickly things, I'm down to the nitty gritty of trying to decide what's edible and not.
The best I can do is try to identify WHAT they actually DID plant, and remove everything that is not it. So, just to help myself out, I looked for pictures of what they planted. Keep in mind, these are NOT pictures from my garden.
and sugar snap peas
Monday: chili/homemade bread
I'm stuck! I guess I need to look at what the rest are doing over at the organizing junkie's.
