It’s always fun to get away. Going away in June can be a challenge. I managed to get the garden all planted before we left and even got a few of my raised beds mulched. However, while we were away there was plenty of rain and when we got home I found my garden full of weeds!

In some of my raised beds it was hard to figure out what was growing and what needed to be weeded!Weeds everywhere!

The beans are off to a good start.Beans

Unfortunately some of my lettuce, which was too small to pick before we left had now bolted. Guess I’ll be saving the seeds instead of enjoying a nice salad!Bolting lettuce

My onions are growing well and definitely need to be weeded!onions

I did find a few strawberries hiding in our berry patch.strawberries

It was also nice to see some beautiful blooms in the

Glad I enjoyed a nice restful vacation! I’ll be spending the next few weeks getting the gardens weeded and finish my mulching!

We have had rain for about 5 days straight, some of my weeds are almost two feet tall!

Your garden looks wonderful. We’re expecting rain tonight which I’m actually looking forward to so I can also weed a few beds. Looks like you use grass clippings to help mulch? Do you like the results?

I love using grass clippings for mulch. We don’t use any pesticides so I don’t have to worry about adding anything harmful to my garden. They help retain moisture and keep the weeds down and by the end of the summer they decompose very nicely.
