blog #114 >> Weeds-Be-Gone!

This weekend I spent about five hours pulling weeds in the garden. This resulted in 16 gallons (measured in four-gallon buckets) of weeds dumped in the dumpster. It was quite the chore, but pretty relaxing. And it was so nice to be outside despite the muggy weather. We also got to pick our first radishes this weekend. They were amazing! And we picked all the spinach because it was starting to go to seed. I took my bunch over to my parents house and we had a delicious strawberry spinach salad with chicken and poppy seed dressing. I highly recommend it for a quick summer dinner when it's much to hot to use the oven.
