Garden 2009 Week 9

Most of us either don't think about how fresh vegetables get to the stores or assume it is a simple task of sticking a seed in the ground and adding a little water when it's convenient, and then after a few weeks enjoying the harvest in the shade of a big oak tree. I know I thought that, until I tried to raise a half decent vegetable garden. So given that, I decided to include a picture of the healthy crop of weeds that I need to harvest each week so I can find the plants I want to keep. It's about this time of the growing season each year that I wonder if the battle with the weeds is worth it. You can see that most everything looks good despite the deer eating some pumpkins, and Marsha and Michael lurking around in the corn.
