Hey Wilmer! You Missed a Spot!
Posted by F&S
Martha’s blog today is all about the terrace garden and how it needed to be pruned back into shape. We Frenchies were making our usual rounds of the farm and decided to inspect how Ryan and Wilmer were progressing with the terrace. Good thing we did because we found something amiss.
1 Francesca, do you see what I see? Wilmer and Ryan have been working hard trimming the terrace garden, but it looks like they forgot to cut this patch of teucrium!
2 Wilmer! Sharkey and I aren't trying to nitpick, but you missed a spot! The rest of the terrace looks so nice. We wouldn't want you to forget this little section!
3 Wilmer, do you know what makes flowers of the teucrium species interesting?
4 The flowers in this species do not have an upper lip of the corolla, or a top petal. It gives them an unusual shape.
5 Now Wilmer, make sure you are only cutting the teucrium here! The heat has caused the flowers to wilt and we need the plants to be healthy, as they attract many bees for pollination!
6 Martha doesn't want you to cut the nepitella on the corner here. Nepitella is a culinary herb that grows wild in Italy. It tastes like a cross between mint and oregano. It also attracts butterflies!
7 Wait Francesca, let me see. Move over, I just want to make sure Wilmer is doing a good job!
8 Oh Wilmer, are we being total pains? You know we like to be involved in every aspect of the farm!
9 Wilmer, you're such a good sport to not let our nagging get to you! We just want the farm to look beautiful!
10 I guess we should let Wilmer take over and use his own judgement on this one. Francesca, let's go find GK and see what he's up to and leave Wilmer be!
