Weeds and more weeds

Dear friends,

It seems that a gardener's life is never perfect. Either it's too dry, or we have too much rain. It's too windy, or not windy enough to give the garden a good airing out.

We've had too much rain, and the garden is happy! However, the weeds are happy, too. Some strange little viney pea-like plant has taken over my garden, literally overnight. These strange plants are easy to pull by hand, but there are so many of them, and they are blooming and setting seed.

Some smarty-pants once said that a weed is just an under appreciated plant. Harrumph!

I'm still trying to ID the sucker. We're totally organic here, so I don't use herbicides of any sort. A good dose of elbow-grease will have to do!

dig it!
