These weeds are turning into the bane of my gardening existence, since they seem to be going at an exponential pace. I’ve already gone with a stirrup hoe on the left hand side of the garden, since the soil was a bit loose. But on the right hand side, which has all the onion, that soil is as firm as hell, so using the stirrup hoe was a big waste of time. Maybe next weekend, I’ll bust out the string trimmer, and really go to town on the right hand side of the garden.
But check out the hops! The Centennial is already at the ~10ft mark on the A-Frame, and its only been about two weeks since the last set of pics. Even the Golding is doing better this year compared to last year. Maybe it has something to do with all the heavy shade being provided by the surrounding rhubarb.

You know, I’ve been thinking about what to do with the chive flowers. Since my original plan was to leave the flowers alone, so that the chives would reseed themselves. But since there are so many, I could always use them in a light salad one afternoon.
Hopefully there can be a proper harvest porter this season. You should be eating those chive flowers, they look delicious.
