State of the Garden Address: DefCon 4!

The City Gardener's Handbook: The Definitive Guide to Small Space GardeningWith nuptials looming and the very real threat of having our reception at our apartment instead of the theatre, (due to said theatre being a bunch of dunderheads) the State of the Garden has moved to DEFCON 4!!! Luckily I did some raking and weeding before all this rain started, so it could look much worse now. My perennials are happily making their way into the world though.
