Getting Out of the Weeds

I looked at this poor little blog the other day and noticed how neglected it appears.  It's not much different than this year's vegetable garden.  Started with good intentions and then pushed aside. 

Not gone.  Not forgotten.  Just not a priority at the moment.  I'm not sure what is. 

From a distance, it doesn't look like much but weeds and grass.

Close up, however, there are a few things growing.  We managed to gather a few peppers and tomatoes recently, and wax beans early on.  We often say that it is a good thing that we don't live or die by how the garden does. 

That is how I've felt lately.  My mind, and thoughts, are in the weeds.  But posts are growing, bit by bit, on scraps of paper and Word documents here and there.  It's just a matter of knocking down what shouldn't be growing, like all that grass in the garden, and focus on what is good.

I recently saw a link for the Write 31 Days challenge.  Have you ever done that?  I'm not sure what category I'll fit into, but I think I am going to give it a try.

It certainly beats looking at all the weeds.



  1. My veggie garden looks about the same this year, except I didn't get to harvest anything as the deer got it before me.

  2. After much neglect this past month, our garden looks the same. Only the okra continues to fight on. I love late summer gardens. The weeds take hold but so do the lovely morning glories and the birds descend to feast on the plants going to seed. The garden is far from dead, merely transitioning. Perhaps your blog will do the same?

  3. my flower beds are a mess...just too hot this summer to do much. will have to do some cleaning before the snow flies!

  4. I'm so far behind that I'm reading this over a month after you wrote it... But I'm glad you keep coming back to it!
