Weeds, Weeds, and More Weeds
Posted by Sharkey
It’s been raining a good deal around the farm and you know that with rain, comes weeds. The guys have been working really hard cleaning up after that crazy twister blew over so many trees. When I saw them weeding around the house, I told Franny that we should really help them with their chores. I always feel good taking on some of the burden.
1 Hey Gyurme, it seems as though with all the recent rain, the weeds are growing like crazy!
2 These look pretty and ornamental, but they do need some thinning. We wouldn't want them to cover the patio.
3 With all these weeds, I bet this bucket will be filled in no time at all!
4 Wilmer! Why are your hands so red? Is it from pulling so many weeds? Oh, I see! You have rubber coated gloves on. They give you better grip and help to keep moisture out. I like them!
5 Weeding sure helps to pass the THYME! Get it?? This thyme really smells good!
6 While we're at it, I'll just reach through the teucrium with these shears and trim up the little boxwoods.
7 Hi Shaun - I'm done pruning the boxwood, no let me give you a paw here in this garden.
8 Wow, these suckers are coming out easily with this handy Japanese weeding tool!
9 Oh my! I caught an earth worm! I didn't mean to disturb you, little guy. I'll just put you back into the soil. Shaun tells me that you are good for the garden. You help to fertilize and aerate.
10 We certainly got a lot achieved today. Has anyone seen Francesca lately? Hmmph! So typical!
