In the garden

The weather continues to be odd. Frost last night, 80F today. I want to plant tomatoes and other veggies this weekend. but not unless I think the frost is over. Frankly, I’m not yet convinced.

It seems like all my free time has been spent cutting grass and trying to keep ahead of the Dandelion Police.

The perennials are happily doing their things, regardless of frost and torrential thunderstorms.

    Dandelion police?

    I’m always amazed that people don’t like dandelions. They are so cheerful. But then, I’m not interested in lawns–the phrase “intensive monoculture” has stuck in my head ever since I first hear you use it!

    Now, _burdock_ police I could understand.

    Ah, I know all about being anxious to get those tomatoes into the ground!

    Dandelions, are actually medicinal; great for the liver. (And rabbits).
