Ya Just Gotta Know Where to Look
When I got to the hoophouse, I began to have second thoughts.
Good night! Look at the weeds! Where WAS the spinach?
Oh dear! …and I promised ALL those customers…
The ongoing battle with the chickweed seemed to be a lost cause in a couple of the spinach beds, so I was on a salvage mission. After getting what I could, I would pull the rest of the plants, and the chickens would have a feast.
Then the Boss would come through and torch the remaining plants in hopes of killing the nasty weeds.
After everything was dead, he would till and I could replant.
At first glance, it appeared that the chickweed had indeed won the battle.
However, …ya just gotta know where to look!…and I do “know what I am doing, have been doing it a long time” Oh, boy…why do I say these things?(it’s okay, you can laugh now….really!)
After a fair amount of time, and several buckets of weeds to the chickens, I was able to fill all the orders with some very nice spinach.
