Weeds

Weeds are a problem that, I feel, comes up often with organic gardening. They are unpleasant and can sometimes (but not always) be harmful to a plant. But an unexpected problem came up this summer that I was too embarrassed to ask for advice on: when my plants were just starting to grow, I wasn’t sure what was my plant and what was a weed. Experienced gardeners may laugh, but the average grocery shopper probably doesn’t even know what a zucchini plant look like, let alone what its little sprout looks like. So Mimi and I took the path of least resistance – we just let everything grow. Until one day, we realized we were raising a weed farm.

Somewhere in there are sad little carrot plants crying for help. We helped them, eventually, but not without a few baby carrot fatalities. Still, it’s better than eating Raid-marinated veggies.
