So it’s been a bit of a rough summer. I haven’t really had it in me to get out in the garden on a regular basis, and the weeds in the back yard and gardens got really out of control. Recently some dear friends of mine introduced me to UFYH and it inspired me to get out there and unfuck the garden.
You can see here that there are weeds throughout the fence-side garden and there’s a sizable weed tree growing against the garage.
Fence-side Weedville in all its glory:
And looking back into the supposed veg garden area:
While the morning glories on the fence have been doing a nice job camouflaging the veg garden, Weedville was still trying to take over.
I started to tackle this on Friday. It was the first day of my vacation, and I really wanted to get it under control. I’ve spent the last few mornings concentrating on weeding.
Here we are on Saturday, starting to see progress in the veg garden:
And the garage weed tree has been chopped down:
Morning Glories no longer obligated to act as a shield:
And today, after three consecutive mornings spent doing nothing else, we have vanquished Weedville!
The birdbath is once again visible. Some of the bagiant weeds out there were so well established that I had to use a shovel to dig out the roots. UGH. My sinuses feel as though there may someday be a day when they aren’t full of allergens and the contact dermatitis I always get from touching weeds has almost faded. Here’s to not ever letting it get this out of control again! UFYH is about tackling things in manageable chunks – here’s to manageable.
