A Slice of Humble Pie

A wheelbarrow full of mistakes

Even experienced gardeners make mistakes. Good Old Bindweed. I could have sworn that it was the morning glories (heavenly blue, of course) that I planted from seed this spring. It grew up right at the base of the trellis, I thought for sure it must be. But no, it was bindweed.  I thought (foolishly) that for sure this would be my best year ever for morning glories.  Not quite.  They look similar- the key, of course, is the flowers.

Drat!

Grandpa Ott's on the ground, I'm holding the blasted bindweed

 Only thing to do is rip it out and hope it didn’t reseed for next year.  Yikes!
