Questions, And You Have the Answers

Where else, but in a garden, can one find the answers to the questions that need to be answered?

I've been asking myself a question for several days now.

It's a question that could have significant implications for my garden.

I was afraid if I didn't answer it soon, all would be lost. My years of preparing the soil, planting trees, shrubs, flowers, and vegetables would be lost.

But this evening, before the last light of the day slipped below the horizon, I found the answer to my question.

I also came up with five questions for YOU to answer and put them in an easy to complete survey.

The survey is completely anonymous, and has nothing to do with politics, economics, gas prices, stock markets or anything else. It's all about gardening and garden blogs.

Follow this link to weigh in and have your opinion count.

Then go out and plan your post for Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day. It's coming up in just two days, on the 15th. You remembered that, didn't you?

Was there anything else I wanted to post about ?

Oh, yes, that question I've been asking!


Here it is...

Where does one start weeding when your garden is full of weeds?

The answer....



  1. I thought that was a trick question! So, can we expect bar graphs?

  2. 'Where shall I begin, please your Majesty?'
    'Begin at the beginning,' the King said gravely, 'and go on till you come to the end: then stop.'

    But would the Red King's advice to Alice work in the garden, Carol? By the time we got to the end, the beginning would be full of weeds again.

  3. I'd say pull the weeds that have seeds, first. "One year's seeding equals seven years' weeding."

  4. Ah, I like Kathy's advice (above)! That's what I've been doing the last month or so. I hadn't heard the quotation, but I like it!! :-) My (early) GBBD post is up.

  5. I never minded weeding. I've always found it a rather pleasant diversion, a peaceful time to think. And then there's always the satisfaction that comes when the weeds are gone and your garden is looking spiffy again. :)

  6. I would change my judgement as to what is a weed and make dandelion wine in the spring;O)

  7. Just start on small area at a time.

  8. Answer's:

    #1.The vegetable garden. Always first, and never last!

    #2. Your front yard, and then all of the borders around the house. Sharp borders make the house look great, and it's nice to come home to a house that look's great!

    #3. Everywhere else. Start in one corner and work your way around the yard. Do the prettiest beds next to backyard patio first. Especially in spring/summer.

    #4. Continue until snow, and nature will hopefully take care of the rest! :)

    P.S. I was not sure if you were looking for a plan or just frustrated by the weeds. All I know is they never end. Ever. Mulch as much as possible and don't ever give up!
