These days I’m methodically whacking my way through a large weeding project: an extended community garden that I neglected for an even more-annoying project for too many months this spring/summer. Tackling the mess in the morning to avoid the worst heat of these days with heat warnings, I fill a large composting bag a day and yet am uncertain whether I’m removing weeds and cutting back invasive plants faster than they’re growing.
Today, though, I woke up to rain, sorely needed but not entirely welcome in this dreary incarnation, even so.
Cold, grey rain pounds down
Wrecking planned fun, but off’ring
Day pass from weeding.
As someone here tends to say, nothing is all good or all bad.
