Initial Weeding has been completed

I’m sure that I shook a bunch of seeds loose from plants that I yanked, so it will be an ongoing labour, removing the weeds. That reminds me: one of the great tips in Square Foot Gardening was to fill seed holes with vermiculite. That way you can tell where something is that you deliberately planted, and sort it from the weeds.

Here’s my garden at about 6pm. Yes, that’s my bike back by the pine tree:

Weeding done.

My sorry looking rhubarb, which should have a chance to grow now that it’s not pinned underneath a wood frame:

My pathetic rhubarb

And, just in case you think everyone’s garden looks rustic, here’s my neighbour across the path (he gave me cucumber plants!)

About pat

Visual thinker, first got interested in digital imagery in the early days of Omni magazine, back when it used to review what had happened at SIGGraph. I worked in the 3D software field for 23 years. Lifelong enjoyment of gardening grew over time; I was a Master Gardener (briefly) and had a vegetable and herb allotment garden in Toronto to grow vegetables, as well as perennial gardens at home. Gardening and enjoying fresh produce also raised my interest in cooking with really good local food. As more restaurants in Toronto are offering local fare, I enjoy dining out and sampling the visions the different chefs have.
