New Collage – The Tenacity of Roots
Roots and I have had a standoff today. I’ve pulled some of the grass from the vegetable garden walkways, but it’s never all of it. So I just worked until I got tired of that. Then there were the beds where we had our field peas. Those were easy to pull out, and almost a pleasure to do. What did take time, however, was unwinding and pulling out the tendrils from the trellises. I felt that if I left them there to dry I’d never get them out. I’ve planted onions in some of the newly-refurbished beds.
The grass and the squirrels might be tenacious, but so am I. I’ve replaced the collard greens and cabbages that the squirrels destroyed, and have now poured tons of cayenne pepper on the beds around them. My fingers are crossed that I get at least a share in my fall garden.
