Wins and losses

When you find yourself lawn mowing between the rows of tomatoes, you know you have lost the battle with weeds in the garden. On the plus side, dig the sexy, candy apple red mower that the Big Onion crew got us during their visit!

  Ever since we tilled the garden back when the weather was still cool and the prospect of keeping up a 50 x 50 plot seemed like a good idea, I have been fighting  an uphill battle with the weeds and grasses trying to reclaim the land. On the farm, it's hard to find time to tool around in the garden when there are living breathing creatures that need time and attention.

  We have collard greens, peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers, yellow squash, cantaloupe, and watermelon all planted and doing pretty darn well despite the weeds. We've even managed to harvest a few things already.

  Time to suck it up, pull out the hoe, and get to weeding!
