Mother Fucking Community Garden: Update

The weed cloth has gone down (it was hard work!) but now I can be lazy the rest of the summer.

Plot

The weeds which are the bane of my existence are already starting, and the ground was very soft and a bit hard to plan, but in about an hour, my mom and I got weed cloth down, found a few squash already so we made holes for them, and then planted flowers, a tomato, and got seeds for corn, sunflowers, and the bulbs for dahlias in.

Also, here’s what happens when you go water your plot on your lunch break with your friend in your work clothes:
