I’m in the Weeds!

Can you find the tomato plant in this photo?

It’s almost mid-summer, and like many people who aren’t at the beach on vacation, I’ve got my head in the garden, more specifically,I've got my head in the weeds.  No matter how hard we try or no matter our good intentions, the weeds seem to get the best of us.  We’ve moved from “control” mode to “all out defense”.  I turn my back after weeding the tomatoes and they pop back up again like I’ve never been there.  It’s an all-out battle as we wait and hope for the first tomato to ripen without being strangled by the invasive intruders.  But, this is not new, we do this game every year and every year we promise not to let it get out of control.  I wonder when we will learn. 

Shoot!  I’ve turned my back on the onions again; I must get back to them before the weeds try to take me down too. 

I swear I just weeded the onions.
