One Mud Monkey's Adventure in Organic Gardening
“Gardening is the art that uses flowers and plants as paint, and the soil and sky as canvas.”
It's never an issue with a control freak like me ;) I just can't stand to see those out of place weeds! Of course I am on top of it in the vegetable garden than the flower beds. But they still don't look bad either.
I have to keep my garden weeded, because if I ever got behind I'd never catch up. I find 10-15 minutes a day, hoe in hand, walking from one end of the vegetable garden to the other, is sufficient to weed, examine and harvest. On the other hand, my flower beds are a mess!
Um, weeds? Really, I try to get to them but there are always patches that are holdouts. Your flowers are quite lovely.
What motivates me to weed is the feeling that the weeds are gaining on me. Right now I am in a state where I can stay ahead of them. I've been in the overwhelmed by weeds state in the past, and it was very unpleasant. The only reason why I am ahead of it now is because I moved.
