The other day the O'Tool family planted a little garden. We have a big garden at The Village, but we wanted a few more things to help Meredith and Drake learn how to grow things. So we took an evening after work and tilled up a little patch that had been left weeds when we prepared the rest of the garden. Then we planted some sweet corn, onions, cucumber, watermelon, beans, and assorted peppers and tomatoes.
Then a couple days later Brian told me he had just sprayed that weed patch with weed killer several times before we had planted. So...I don't think this is going turn out to be a very good lesson.
