About the third week of March or thereabouts I started some seeds indoors. I planted leeks and onions first, followed shortly behind with an assortment of hot peppers.
Being the thrifty/green gardener that I am, I saved, rinsed out and cut down all the Timmy coffee cups we used at a work related seminar. Turns out they make pretty good seedling pots.
Because the weather was spectacular over the weekend I decided there was no better time than the present to declare war on the quack grass that has plagued my veg garden these past few years. So I tackled this. (see photo above)
Friday afternoon had it looking pretty much like this.
I transformed it into this.
Using just a few favourite tools and a powerful determination to be rid of the dreaded grass roots if only for a a few weeks I kept at it for 2 full days.
Of course I have no feeling in my fingers and every muscle from the shoulders down is protesting my over zealous assault on all perenial weeds....but man it's a great feeling to be back in the dirt again!
