Lemon grass looks like (wait for it) GRASS.
I'm mowing my garden. Does that say anything?
Actually, I tried mowing it but I'm having to use a brush cutter. Not because brush has taken over, but it high enough I can't see what Spottie or PITA brought into the garden so I started hitting surprises and almost burnt the belt.
The eggplant area is ready to plant, so that was the main objective.
Notice the grass in the center of the picture? That is intentional and the other looks sooo much like the lemon grass. Too bad lemon grass is not as persistent as what i think is Johnson grass.
I've started some by seed and believe I gave some away at Weed'em and Reap. Has anyone's taken hold? This one came from a visiting health professional visiting Mommy. Last fall I had so much produce coming in late in the year that I was handing it out to anyone who came up the driveway.
This one fellow really enjoyed the radishes and brought me a bulb of lemon grass. It overwintered in the greenhouse and is coming along quite nicely now.
Oh yes, there are carrots in the tire as well. Strangely the black carrots are hairy as all get out. Not sure I like them, but it was a novelty planting anyway.
That reminds me. I can't remember if I ever rated the golden snow peas I tried this year. The Spring planting was blah. Will try them again this fall to see if it was just the timing, but I was not impressed. The regular sugar snaps did fine.
The yellow yard-long beans have yet to be planted so I have nothing to report on them yet. Maybe after the brush cutting I will plant some since they like hot weather, and we got HOT WEATHER!
I'll water them for a few weeks to get started, but after that, they are on their own.
