Oh, look at this sweet little Dandelion patch. The burning question is: Are there dandelions growing in the asparagus patch or……..
are there asparagus growing in the dandelion patch? I’m not sure there is an answer to this question grasshopper. I think we must weed our asparagus patch. Maybe just de-dandelion it.
The garden has been tilled twice. These little green patches are actually herbs. The brown patches are two chocolate labs who have not been properly contained out of the garden. I see an electric fence in the near future.
No, this is not a dandelion! This is Alex working in the garden. We are trying to continue in the reuse mode. These green ties are from our hay bales. We have them in abundance. The wire fence panels are the left over ends from the lamb jugs we made in the barn. We weren’t sure what we were going to do with them. They really came in handy here as a pea trellis.
We placed them between the posts and tied them to the existing wires to hold them in place. We planted peas which will climb the panels and grow nice and strong. It too is an experiment. There are always variables. Only time will tell. We should be safe planting peas. There is always the chance of frost till June 1st.
Here is Ted mowing our huge patch of dandelions. Oh what a shame. If we ever find a market for these flowers we will be rich. For now…they just get mowed! Mow on Ted.
I know that many of you fellow bloggers are actually harvesting your gardens. Here in Maine we have to take it slow. I don’t like to start seeds inside. I tried it once and the cats thought it was salad fixin’s for them. Now we wait till the threat of frost is past and plant seeds and plants. I will have to work on seed prep 101. Happy Gardening!
Much Love and Prayers from Mainely Ewes Farm and our land of dandelions. Kelly
