I am not a gardener, but every spring I forget that fact. You know how we women forget the pains of childbirth so we have more. Well that's similar to my affliction with gardening. I just spent 2 hrs outside digging out these beds that the previous owners put in and they were completely overgrown when we bought the house. Last spring I cleaned them out but that was as far as I took it. So today I am doing the same thing I did last year because I did not take care of them. So all my hard work was for not. I have this grand vision of having a vegetable garden and this spot is great as it gets sun all day. So today I am cleaning it out and then going to Lowes (no I am not promoting Lowes, it just happens to be closer than the other big guy) and buying a roll of black plastic to kill everything. I know I am probably late for the area I live in but I figure after a couple of months of suffocating anything left in the beds it will be the beginning of May and maybe I can still do some planting?? Maybe I am being hopeful it will only take a couple of months with the plastic maybe not. Oh and yes I know it's not technically spring but where I live now this is what spring looks like in the north where I am from. So for me it's springtime!!!
