The day I went out to plant peas, I realized the vegetable garden was filled with blooming purple deadnettle and not quite ready for planting.
I got the bright idea to use a weed-whacker to at least cut back the flowers of the deadnettle to keep it from setting seed.
Then I had an even brighter idea. I decided to hire someone to clear the garden and level it off.
Then I had the brightest of ideas. I decided to have the same crew build raised beds with concrete edgers.
Now the vegetable garden is all laid out and ready to plant.
I could not be happier or more eager to plant. It’s like Christmas, my birthday, and May, all rolled into one for this gardener.
