I wish I would remember to take a photo of the garden patch before I start weeding. Oh, well. Pulled five or six three-gallon buckets' worth of weeds and dead plants and suchlike out. Need to do a bit more soon, but the late-afternoon shadows were beginning to set in.
As far as perennials/in-this-climate-they-might-as-well-be-perennials go, the tree collard is so happy. The kale would be happier if I could figure out what these damn mildewy aphid things are that are troubling it. And nothing fazes the rosemary, of course.
Definitely need to put in some lettuce. At least this time Pirate (with his new-found fondness for salads) will be helping me to eat it, so maybe it won't all go to seed like it has in the past.
