The Watermelons have finally taken off, they seem to be slow starters, but, when they get going, look out. I was weeding when it struck me that some of the weeds are beautiful healthy greens, as pretty as the greens I grow on purpose. Some kind of Dandelion there that looks as good or better than my Spinach. It would be delicious too, I'm sure. But, I'm already wasting enough greens here, so I'll pass. I felt kind of bad killing it off. I hate thinning plants too. It makes me feel bad. Today I found a spider in the bathroom sink as big as a saucer. I caught him and took him out to the garden. I have a real hard time killing anything lately. Being out in the garden is a good spot to think about things like that.
It ruins your fingernails though. I've given up fingernails until Winter.
