Weeds and Not Weeds

This spring I was a little ruthless about clearing the area in front of the house, until I realized that there were things in there that I wanted to keep. Like peonies. Then I was a little ruthless about NOT clearing. As in I've done basically no weeding since June in here, after mom and I planted corn, rosemary, melons and cucumbers in this area. The corn is before the picture begins, and the cucumbers are at the very end. In between is the area where I didn't know what anything was. As you can see, some of it is weeds (goldenrod), and some of it is not weeds (phlox). Maybe next season I'll better be able to tell the weeds from the not weeds. One can hope!

  1. Don't feel bad in the least about your confusion of what's a weed, what's not.

    This summer, when having to move some flowers for her veggie garden area, my daughter carefully dug up some Sweet William, gave them to me and I carefully planted them on our property. Turns out we both expended our efforts transplanting . . . Goldenrod. But it sure was happy and healthy.
