Ok so I knew it when I did it but I am ALWAYS hopeful that I won't be so lazy. I'm almost embarassed to show you guys but alas I will.
At the beginning of the summer I am so gun-ho about the garden. I did careful preparations but missed one essential thing......the weed stopper. I added hummus and OleRoy dog food to the soil, tilled it about 5 times, watered it and let it sit for a day. I then planted and totally forgot about the weed blanket.
So when I came home from vacation the weeds had overtaken the garden and I have been trying to save it ever since. We have gottten crops already so all is not lost. We have eaten 4 cucumbers from the garden and have eaten a bunch of tomatoes too. It just looks soooooooooo sad.
There is always next year!!!
