Weeds are taller than me!

Finally, today the sun came out and I ventured into the veggie garden to see what I've been missing over the past wet days. Disaster! The weeds haven't taken a rest at all. The beans that were planted during the last warm spell have all rotted in the ground and the slugs are out in full force. Oh well, I know it's not too late to plant corn so I'll go and plant and keep my fingers crossed.

This is a very bad sign. You aren't supposed to let the weeds take over until at least July.

Please report to the Imperial Gardener's Court and turn in your sacred golden trowel and ceremonial alpaca gardening gloves.

If she had alpacas the weeds might not have been so bad.

RE: Weeds are taller than me!

Funny, I was thinking of getting an alpaca....

Secret to successful gardening is like secret to weight loss.
In the first case : WEED and get the slugs. In the latter stop eating..haha

I live very close to a 23 acre Alpaca farm. They are not near as big as Llamas.
They sure are cute! Especially when the playful newborns are outfitted in colorful Alpaca sweaters.

They may be cute, but be forewarned of alpacas, if you do something they don't like, they will spit at you, seriously! So the alpaca can do the weeding, what about the pesky snails and slugs...
