I swear I'm going to win the battle of the garden this year. I told that to my neighbor when he saw me out there digging in. He said "it takes work". Oh, I know that. And I don't have a problem with the work. It's just so time consuming. Translation: more yard work = less sewing. All together now... AWWWWWW
Last year I think I started too late. The weeds got a huge head start and I was chasing after them all summer. The flowers got a late start and just couldn't compete with the weeds.
This year... WINNING!
Next I have to tackle this honeysuckle and these bushes.
Next year I'll tackle the lawn. And by that I mean the dandelions.
