(blogger is still not dating my posts right: today is june 26, 2007)
i've decided i will be lazy in this post and not capitalize. the garden is growing, but pretty slowly. The pole beans have just started to climb and the roma tomato bush is loaded. i get about a handful of strawberries every few days, but i'm sharing them with something who lives near my garden... haven't figured out just who that might be yet, though. i've started cutting greenery growing in the vicinity to mulch my ground with, but it's going to take me a little while to get all of it covered heavy enough to discourage the grasses and weeds from growing. i don't know the name of the weed i'm cutting, but it has a strong green smell, has no flowers and doesn't seem to be the sort of thing that will cause a problem by rooting wherever i lay it. right now my sweet potatoe row is covered with it, and it seems to be a good camoflouage because the first few that i didn't cover got eaten and the rest that were covered were left undisturbed. i've been using my little hand sickle to cut the weeds and i love that tool! i grab a handful and cut it off at the ground. works great.

i guess i'll show a picture of me. this might be the only time you'll get to see a picture of me, as i don't take them that often and do not feel very photogenic, lol.

boy, did i find out what that harmless weed was! turns out that it is something TERRIBLE for my sinuses!! i still don't know what it is, maybe a ragweed or something, but there will be no mercy or friendliness shown toward it in the future - just wait until it's not blooming next year, I'll get it then.
