So this is what it's like to have a sunny place in the garden?
Wildflowers have taken over my small veggie patch. They have grown so much better here than in the wildflower garden I purposely created in the back garden. The climate over here with 5-6 hours of sun each day is so different than all the other shady places I'm used to in my garden.
I can't say that it is all that pretty. There are dead tomato vines sprawled throughout begging to be uprooted.
Procrastination has overtaken me where this clean up task is concerned. Every time I get started I find myself digging up and potting blue porterweed and red coccinea salvia to preserve for somewhere... anywhere... I can't just pluck them all out and throw them away. So many self-seeded ... and they are everywhere.
And then there are those peppers that just keep on producing. I guess I'll just let those plants stay put and see what happens.
Although I've planted new tomato seeds in small pots this ground should have been turned and left to settle with new compost and soil in it several weeks ago. It should be ready for the fall veggie garden.
The fact that new zinnias keep popping up makes it even more difficult to make myself clear the beds for planting seeds.
Who knew companion planting would create such a challenge by the end of the summer season?
I'm just going to have to buckle down and get brutal with some of those persistent flowers. Geesh! they don't even require much water... neglect is more like it ... do you see the dilemma? If I leave them I can't plant a fall veggie garden but at the same time these are by far the most care-free flowers in one place in all of Hoe and Shovel... more procrastinating!
