The weeding continues. I've been working on the square foot veggie beds for the last two days. I got one and a half done yesterday and one and a half done today, plus a few of the pathways between the beds. That leaves the asparagus bed and the blueberry bushes that are being overtaken by weeds. I'm getting there, slowly but surely. I have also discovered that every ant in Jefferson County, and maybe even Walker County, just up the road, has taken up residence in my veggie beds and those nasty little things bite. I did some unspeakable things to them today, dousing them with boiling water. I always feel guilty about doing that, but we just cannot coexist peacefully I'm afraid.
I'm hoping to get the weeding finished in the veggie area tomorrow before the rains come. That is, if I can actually move tomorrow- every joint and muscle in my body is voicing discontent in light of my recent activities. Doe this mean I'm getting old, or is it just that I was too sedentary over the winter?
