I struggle to get over there like I mean to.
But I have to change my shoes… and remember what to bring… and convince myself to put on “somscream.”
Then a trip across the state (don’t laugh, it’s a big state) and it’s been ages.
The squash didn’t mind.
I keep telling myself to refresh my tomato pruning knowledge and actually prune them this year. (I likely won’t.)
Just like I ignored the row spacing
instructions suggestions for the cowpeas.
Again, the weeds grew just as, if not more voraciously. I am not accustomed to this. It makes me miss my carefully-crafted, cautiously-curated, mostly weed-free gardens of yore.
Yet I remind myself to be grateful for the bountiful fruitful glorious loam that is this soil. The decades of organic gardening, tending, and watering – even if the Bermuda and torpedo and other such abhorrent invaders have yet to be kept at bay.
Anyone know the name of this invader?
