We have had lots of rain here in my Maryland, zone 7 garden. And with the rain, the weeds and grass have grown in leaps and bounds--way bigger than all of the carefully planted vegetables, herbs and flowers. So I spent the last three days weeding, which gave me lots of time to reflect on the subject. ]]>

I thought for sure that I had posted the recipe for making salsa verde with botanicals foraged from in and around the garden, however I can only find my traditional one posted, which contains garden grown herbs and greens. So here is the wild weed version for those of you who requested it. ]]>

While I've heard it's an effective method, I've also heard that it won't kill the weed's roots. For me, that's a deal breaker. The reason why I haven't given this mixture a shot is that I don't see the point if I can't be sure that I've snuffed them out entirely. But then I'm lazy like that. ]]>

My perception of cover crops and green manures is they're right in line with compost bins, vermicomposting, grasscycling, and even mulch - they're all a form of composting. In other words, they're all about turning natural resources back into nature. ]]>

There is a yellow tendril growing on some of my basil plants. It does not seem to be growing from the soil. Only from the plant it self. Can anyone tell me what it might be? ]]>
