We haven't even finished building our veggie garden, and we already have an overabundance of our first crop.
This crop seems to grow a little too easily in this area, as we have harvested dozens in just a small section of soil. Some even seem to be growing one on top of the other!
While we do love this particular crop, it is pulling them out that is the problem. Some come out easily; others seem to have very deep roots indeed.
It is somewhat exciting - these didn't grow nearly as big or in so much abundance in my previous garden in North Carolina. If only they weren't so hard to harvest...
A few had grown so large that it took the efforts of both Mr. Red House and I to uproot them. And then there was the Big One. It had roots so deep, that it defied both our efforts. (We decided it was quite fine staying where it was.)
Anyone up for some Stone Soup? You just have to dig a little... (or a lot!)
