freeing three sister's garden and aloe
Today was another day of exhilarating grass hacking and weeding. More than half of the grass in the three sister's garden was tackled and removed. All that remains to be done is a small section of it, as well as some soil turning. More cardboard and mulch can be placed down between the beds and the three sister's garden.
The aloe patch along the side of the garden was saved today from the lawn mowers. Grass was removed around the aloe and rocks were put down to mark the plants. Similarly, the pineapple and watermelon plants were also weeded and are now very happy. Both plants were watered. The herb garden was supplemented.
Our epic battle with grass is still raging, but today victory was ours. The end is nearing for the grass. The three sister's garden should be finished tomorrow without too much trouble. Almost time for planting!
