Weeds are everywhere including the most vexing garden invader to inhabit the United States of America: Bermuda grass. This stuff is nothing short of pure evil when it gets into a garden. The runners go everywhere and every last piece of root has to be removed or else the grass from "you know where" goes "you know where" --- in the garden beds!
Gardener's Advice: NEVER PLANT BURMUDA GRASS INTENTIONALLY IF YOU WANT A GARDEN!
|Yes there is a garden under that Bermuda grass!|
The cucumbers are producing at an extremely alarming rate too - nothing wrong with that! Some are pickling cucumbers which were also from Renee's Garden and others are plain regular cucumbers from the Greenland Gardener Kit. I need to give you an update on that garden bed soon.
The trellises I built for the cucumbers are doing fantastic! They are heavy enough to withstand the 50-60 mph winds like we had last night and perfect for climbing vine vegetables like cucumbers and melons.
One other issue with garden neglect is the monster cucumbers that continue to grow until someone gets out there to pick them!
Needless to say I have my work cut out for me this weekend, but all that really matters in the vegetable garden is what its produces in the end - yum!
