When weeds attack.

Yesterday morning while watering the garden, I noticed that skipping a few weeks of garden maintenance caught up with me.
Where do the weeds end and the carrots begin? Why is it that the cucumber vines, which are somehow still pumping out pickle-sized cucumbers, keep spreading and snuffing out the other plants?
And my goodness - what to do with all of this purslane (an edible weed)?
I couldn't help but laugh. The situation is pretty ridiculous.
After watering, I grabbed a few cherry tomatoes, fresh off their vines, for breakfast.
Back inside the house, I packed some portable eats for work.
Two half-sandwiches with crunchy PB.
Chobani and fruit.
Blueberries topped with frozen, home-grown raspberries.
Work went by in a blur, and Zak and I did a ~ 7 mile training walk. It was a warm, pleasant night and didn't feel like we walked such a long distance.
Tonight it's time for another Point Fish Fry & A Flick... the feature tonight is Inglorious Basterds. Should be interesting!
Question of the Day - What's your favorite Brad Pitt movie? Mine would have to be Snatch or Fight Club.

Looks like you got some great stuff out of your garden! And your chard is bright and pretty! :)

I am just glad the tomatoes are brightly colored, otherwise I'd never find them!

Oh, I would be in so much trouble if I started a garden. I can't even keep our tiny front flowerbed weed free. It's insane how fast they grow!!

I actually have heard of people eating purslane and liking it. You should try it. Let me know how that goes:)

I am SO with you on Snatch. He was brilliant in that movie. Loved Inglorious Bastards:)
