I mulched the area between the 2 rows with cardboard that siding came in.
Here's a little loop of stem just emerging.
The bean project was my inspiration.
My ongoing project (and this is where the perspiration comes in) is trying to get a handle on all the poison ivy. While the house next door is vacant, I have been trying to pull up some poison ivy that is growing on the other side of the fence (which actually is still a couple of feet on my property).
You can see the large pile of honeysuckle, poison ivy, and sundry saplings that I have stacked by the fence. That's about 3-hours' worth of work, and with long sleeves to cover my skin, pretty sweaty work.
I think I should remember to put lemonade on the grocery list.
