|A weed or not a weed, that is the question.|
For those of you that who are having a hard time determining garden plant from garden weed I hope what I share here will help a little. So here are some things I was chewing on....
First off, label wherever it is you have sown seed or take a photo of the spot and note what you sowed there so when the seedlings start to appear you don't think "Oh my gosh look at all those weed seedlings!" and hoe them out! Trust me, it happens more than most folks want to admit. I recommend learning to use that "macro" setting on your camera for the best detail. Save the images on your computer and have one folder for garden plants and one for weeds...note names if you know them or note them as weed or garden plant.
|Little Western Bittercress and note other seedlings all over the place.|
|But Daddy, why do we have to dig the Dandelion flowers out of the yard? They are so pretty!|
|A rosette of fuzzy leaves is a dead giveaway.|
|Can you name this grass seedling?|
|The prettier of the two Veronica weeds in my back yard.|
|Plantain growing well, leaves the size of a man's hand...go figure.|
There are a lot more weeds to cover so stay tuned, I'm just getting started.
