Subject: RE: BS: Gardening: What are you harvesting?
Last year I bought a house with a big back yard, because I wanted a garden.
             WHAT WAS I THINKING!!!!!!!!

I'm enjoying a wonderful assortment of aches and pains from digging the beds. There's bindweed, so I've resorted to weed killer. (Dandilions can be dug, ditto plantain, chickweed etc. Bindweed does not play fair!) The neighbor's dog comes through the hedge and relieves itself in my flower bed. I found this out last fall when I sat in some. Three days after I put in my strawberries, it snowed!

On the other hand. My peppers and broccoli are looking good. My six little lavender plants are growing bigger every day. My viburnum, that I nearly gave up for lost, is looking good. I'm going to get fruit off my currants this year and most of the strawberries survived.
