  • I love it when I stand quietly in the garden and hear all the activity. Bees, wasps, even flies of all shapes and sizes, butterflies, hummingbirds, and insects I can't identify. A living garden!

    The crabgrass has taken over several beds and it is too hot to get out there on a serious binge. Plus the dry weather had turned some of the beds into soft rock.

    The roots are just too tough to get right now. I find it better to loosen the soil with a fork and

    gently pull than to get the tiller out and break the roots into hundreds of new plants. It is not a "silver bullet" but it is better in the long run.
