The war against weeds
I know you have heard me moan and groan about weeds... but take a look below.
These are just a few weeds pulled from here...
I should explain (again) that our property is at the edge of a forest and... I am sure... the forest continues to make every attempt to reclaim it.
The fence line has never seen growth like this (at least since we've lived here).
The forest has even begun to take over the area by the deck...
See that yellow ummmm.... flower? In a nearby field there are hundreds of them (thousands?) appearing as a beautiful field of yellow. In my yard it is a weed.
The above is the area of the garden where the two remaining small raised beds will go. The forest has already tried to take it back.
The forest is winning the war this year. Be afraid. Be very afraid. Sigh...
