I just had a group of friends sign up for a farmers co-op type thing - where you pay a fixed amount per week and farmers deliver a full share or part share of their produce with you (you sort of take a chance - sometimes mother nature steps in and wrecks havoc on crops and you won't get anything) - anyway, she was boasting she paid $60 for this:

Which more or less (in quantity) is delivered every week at the (what I think is high priced) price of $240 a month...

So I told her that she and some of the other ladies (who also balked at the price) should come put in a half day with me in my garden every spring pulling weeds/transplanting/maintaining and I'd let them take home that much and fresh eggs once a week. LOL!

I would LOVE to have an extra pair or two of hands in the spring. Then I can go BIGGER! They (whoever 'they' is - maybe the garden gods? LOL) say that if the grass out grows your garden and you can't keep it pulled, then your garden is too big for you. I don't care - I still have so much fun planting and growing -- the veggies grow JUST FINE in the grass - you just have to search harder for them when you want something to eat. Haha!

I have no shortage of weeds either - but I try to remove any from areas I want to photograph because I send pics to my sister in the UK and weeds are afraid to grow in her garden so it always looks pristine - I think she just stares at them and they wilt away!!!

Speaking of weeds, I have pretty much misplaced my rose garden. I know where it must be; I just have a hard time finding it for the weeds. I am a bad flower parent.

I don't think CT likes roses, they never do well for me here
Anyone else have problems with Japanese Beetles and Red Lily Beetles?
They seem to destroy even large shrubs from the roots up

I have Japanese beetles. I have sprayed for them several times.
They have a harder time finding my roses now that they are hiding in the weeds.
