|The aftermath of hand weeding lamb's quarters out of spinach|
|The tasty beast|
Our spinach was doing well for a time. The lamb's quarters were tiny and Fearless said to herself: "I'll just wait 'til they're a little bigger so they're easier to pull out". Ha! Big mistake. That 'little bigger' didn't happen. Instead, gigantically bigger choking out the spinach, lettuce and escarole DID happen. So yes, get our your tweezers and pull those buggers when they're small y'all. I admit yesterday afternoon I was feeling a bit disheartened. But feelings are kind of ridiculous sometimes.
And then the silver lining.
|Lots, and lots of it|
