Gardening rules

When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it. If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant.

Any of your own to add?

  1. Nice close up of an Echinacea. When starting from seeds if you want it too much, it won’t even germinate, best to rely on volunteers. Our best tomatoes are from volunteers that sprang from a random abandoned pot of old compost.

  2. LOL… I was “deadheading” my coneflower last fall and tugged a bit too hard. Oops…that one was a goner.

  3. Rabbit’s Guy: Pretty much like washing your car on the wrong day.

    Rurality: Murphy’s Law, yeah.

    d. moll: I’ve no luck with starting seeds, but you’re right about those tomato volunteers. Wonder why that is, exactly.

    Jayne: I’m famous for pulling good things out in the spring when it’s too early to recognize them as something other than weeds.

    Mary: But… I’m sure he thought he was being extra helpful!
