A weed is a plant that grows too good in a place You don’t want it.
Yesterday changed totally after I had written the blog and turned out to be the best day so far this year, a bit windy every now and again but sunny and warm. We were out most of the day and I repotted the last indoor plants I have but I still need to repot some small trees I have outside. I’ll bring most of them to the plant swapping day in late summer.
We also played a lot in the garden i between walks and I did some weeding as well. When most people think of weeds they think of crab grass in the American continent, we over here think of quick root, another grass. Thistles and nettles are also some plants that pop up in our minds. Here I also often thing Black currants, raspberries and gooseberries 🙂 I find new small plants all over my garden every year.
The raspberries I just pull up but I tend to plant the gooseberries and currants in small pots and there they are for a year or two till I can find a spot to plant them 🙂 The ones I find in the garden are usually sown by birds who ate my berries but we do have wild currants growing in this country, both black and red. The wild ones have smaller and fewer berries but they tend to be delicious, especially the gooseberries. Wild raspberries are also much tastier than the garden varieties, the best berries in the world closely followed by the wild strawberries.
I never mowed the lawn though, I thought the grass was short enough to wait until the coming weekend. It is warm now though and will be all week long they say so I guess it will grow like crazy 🙂 I’ll survive because I have a long weekend this week so I can mow it in parts during several days if I so wish 🙂 I’ll go to a garden center on Friday I think. I’ll buy a plum tree. I promised my neighbor that I would so their little plum tree will give plums too now when their little daughter is growing up. Some plum trees are sold as self fertile and if one is happy with three or four plums a year that’s right but it is always best to have another variety close, one that can fertilize the tree one has because like apples not all trees can do that.
It is time for something to eat and then a look on what tv has to offer.
Have a great day!
