I know. But, everywhere!
Purslane. What was beginning to bloom in the paths should now be history. Fat lotta good it's gonna do for seed production. How many seeds will one missed plant make, 100? 1000? How years will the seeds be viable if they are tilled into the ground, 1 year? 2? 20?
The potatoes were hilled - what was that ... about 15 days ago - yesterday there was nice, fresh purslane 6 & 8 inches tall in the spuds? I mean, after all that loose soil was moved around the plants, there was not weed ONE to be seen!
111° ... Good attention to watering and soil moisture ... interesting how you could see how sunlight restricted weed growth but give that purslane shade and varoom ... off it went!
more sore today from 2 hours of sitting on a stool, reaching, stretching, to pull weeds than 2 hours of running the tiller.
purselane plant you say, how many seeds can one plant make you say, how long will those seeds be viable you say... my experience one plant can make millions of seeds and the seeds are viable long past when you or me will be dead... i wish Mom would help me eat some of it.
