I left the Community Garden alone the last six weeks because typically I had been picking everything the morning before Church and then delivering these to Church before I went home to get ready. In September I was on the set up crew as our church is a portable church. Northfield meets in Knox Doss Middle School at Drakes Creek. So every Sunday we set up the chairs, drapes, lighting, sound, children's area, tables, coffee station, and everything else that goes into a typical church these days. So every Sunday in September I want early to Church to do that instead. There just wasn't much time left for the garden. And there were the deer. When we left last the deer had eaten all the tomatoes, green beans, tops of the black eye peas and were starting to eat the okra. So I had given up on any hope of getting anything.
There were definitely some weeds, but not as many as you would think. Some of the cooler season weeds came back. Especially the little flowers that I tilled about a million seeds into the ground in the spring. You can see some weeds in the background of this picture.
All in all God has made plants to reproduce and that is what they do. Even when you don't baby them, fertilize, weed, or water them.
