I’m relatively new to gardening. We started
the first garden I’ve ever had when we moved into this house three
years ago. It’s crazy how much there is to learn about gardening. The
first two years we spent buying, planting and then yanking out.. over
and over and over. This year things came in well and looked pretty so we haven’t
yanked anything. Now what I’m trying to figure out is how to keep
things in check. I’ve got plants growing out of control, completely
covering other plants, going places they’re not supposed to, etc. It
doesn’t grow evenly does it? So now I’m trying to figure out how to get
everyone on the same page. It’s the first year back for this cinquefoil
and good gravy that thing can grow!
It was crazy nuts all over our poor
tiny yews that won’t budge and it was just a wild mess. I think we
thought it was a ground cover? Not so much! So I chopped it. I was
hesitant to do it because the flowers are so pretty but they look
lovely on the table, and now the garden is looking much tidier.
And look, it even matches Phoebe’s cutie outfit!
