the evidence of my shameful neglect

My poor, poor vegetable garden. It has been taken over by invasive grass and gross neglect.

Chronic fatigue and an overflowing schedule have put a damper on gardening this summer, yet somehow the plants still grow without careful tending.

We had a rare 70 degree day yesterday and took advantage of it by spending an hour weeding and harvesting the rest of the overgrown radishes.

Only a few carrots and one lonely little lettuce sprouted from the many that we planted, so I will be replacing those with other quick-growing crops within the next week.

The cucumbers are ready to be staked, so I’ll build the trellises next week also.

With our happy radish harvest, Katie and I will make some potato and radish greens soup today.

I’m excited to try my hand at fermented radishes too. If all goes well, I’ll share the recipe.

Is anyone else out there as bad a gardener as I am? I need some love, so let me know in the comments if you’re garden-impaired.
