WSU's Hortense site, says the only way to fight it is to put several inches of organic mulch over it. Sounds good to me.
I know I mentioned last week that I wanted to work on my palette garden. Well, I have located palettes. That's a start, right? I have also cleared out the picture window over my kitchen sink. This was no small task and I have some mason jars that will be housing some herbs there for me. I am going to attempt to use it as a safe spot to germinate some sunflower seeds as well. The window seat is way too accessible to little fingers that want to help.
Oh, and my happy gardening mama story of the week. We have been waiting for our tulips to bloom. We check everyday. (They did open for a few hours one day last week, but I kept my mouth shut.) On Easter morning, the Lil Man was heading downstairs and he SHOUTED, "Mama, our tulips bloomed for Easter! They bloomed!" Oh, happy heart. Now I am sure it is only a matter of moments before the dear chomp them or Lil Miss plucks their gorgeous little heads off. It is my world...and I love it.
