A blog following me and my family on our path to a healthier lifestyle
Wednesday, May 26, 2010
The garden is starting to explode, both with bounty and weeds! We pulled out a probably a third of our radishes, giving us an overflowing bowl that should last us a couple weeks.
Our strawberry plants have lots and lots of fruits. We are trying to balance, letting the fruit ripen and getting our hands on them before the birds.
We have already picked a handful of berries. Ours are much smaller than the organic strawberries we got in our produce box.
Our broccoli is developing into heads. This is especially exciting because last year we did not get any broccoli. TJ was running between his baby pool and the broccoli this weekend pouring water on it, all while telling me he wanted to eat it, and that I should cook it. So adorable!
While our fruits and vegetables are doing well, so are the weeds, especially clover. They are everywhere!
Luckily my husband is helping a ton with the weeding!
After an hour or so of both of us weeding on Saturday and Sunday, the garden looked a little better.
There must be a way to limit the weed growth, but we definitely haven't found it. I am a little nervous about the hot weather in July and August because that is when I remember the weeds being the worst.
Does anyone have any tricks for keeping weeds at bay?
I am a 28 year old wife and mother on the path to a healthier lifestyle. I like to cook, garden, run, read and talk about nutrition and play with my rambunctious 2 year old boy TJ. I love tasty (read as greasy) food, so I am pretty constantly trying to find a good balance.
