Weeds vs. Man, Round 3

I regret to inform you that in this round, we experienced several fatalities.  Namely, a hoe.  James is hard on tools, and if ever you see him at work, you will understand why.

We pulled several pound of onions, as various thistles and spiny plants were attempted to take over their bed, and their tops were drying up anyway.  Dan took home the Candy Apple Reds as well as any split onions (victims of James' enthusiasm).  Our onion are quite lovely, much bigger than I've ever harvested from our house in town.  Maybe next year (God willing), I will only plant onions out at the land, where, despite neglect and lack of water, we had several baseball-sized onions.

The potatoes look great, although I spy potato beetles all over our Rose Finns.  I guess that's what happens when we plant later.

Plumbers called and a hot day for us, AC-free people, so we returned victorious to our homes.

Until next time, remember.  This is not paradise.  It's Purgatory Ranch.
