It was a weed war again today. I cleaned out the ice plant area that is around our drainage culvert. What a mess. Never buy cheap landscape cloth. It doesn’t work worth a darn. All the weeds had put roots through the cloth and into the dirt making it much harder to weed.

In the afternoon, we went to the local dollar store and found some plastic containers for the seeds. I had them all in a big plastic drawer. This meant every time I needed any seeds I had to take the whole drawer down. Now I’m going to have individual boxes for vegetables, flowers, and herbs. That way I’ll be able to find what I need without as much effort. I just need to find some smaller bags in which to put the seeds I save. I like to put all of one kind of seed in a sandwich size plastic bag. I’ve been putting seeds I save into snack-size bags.
They are the same width as the sandwich bags so don’t fit in very well. I’d like to find something about half the size of the snack bags. I guess I’ll look online as I can’t think of any local place that would carry small bags.

I tried to do some work on my site but our hosting company is having problems and my site was up and down all day.

In the evening it was edge mowing day. I almost got it done before dark. I checked when the sun was setting and tried to time it correctly. Unfortunately, it took a lot longer to do the edge mowing than expected. I worked until I couldn’t see my hand in front of my face (well almost) and I still have more to do…

My husband used the new grass catcher yesterday. It seems to do a pretty good job. It did clog up a couple times so he has to keep an eye on what’s going on and unclog it when needed. We now have several large buckets full of mulch and he didn’t finish his mowing either. That is exciting for us. Fewer and fewer gardens to weed that’s my new motto.
