I haven’t gotten as far on the weeding as I had planned.
The pig weeds are still thriving in parts of my garden. 😦 Unfortunately, there have been many interruptions to my weeding plans. Some have been sad. The mother of one of our youth passed away last week. It’s a difficult situation.
And one of the interruptions was just plain weird. I may tell you about it tomorrow.
But, on the bright side, I have made some progress.
I have peas growing in abundance.
My pepper plants are doing quite well.
And a couple of my tomato plants are doing well.
And this morning I uncovered some bean plants that looked kind of healthy.
I counted about 6 bean plants that have survived. I think I will try to get some more in the ground.
By 9:30 this morning, I had cleared quite a bit more of the pig weed.
The other day I asked a gentleman, who comes by often to watch the progress, why it’s called pig weed. He didn’t know. So I looked it up. It’s because this type of weed is used as pig fodder. Too bad I don’t have a pig farm. My piggies would be well fed!
