This is what a neglected garden looks like :
beans as woody as tree branches.
potato plants ravaged by beetles.
kale plants that have made a run for it and escaped their row cover ; brassicas covered in moth-y butterfly types.
and lamb’s quarters (among other undesired greenery) almost as tall as my very tall partner.
This humidex is getting to me so my attempts to weed/uncover, harvest, and save crops with a lovely warm infant wrapped to my person (my front no less given the whole back wearing – neck control thing) have been very very limited.
Luckily my beaux-parents have saved and preserved beans for us and P. harvests almost daily for our meals.
(and isn’t made grumpy by this heat at all).
