I posted a while back how I was going to have a section of mondo grass alongside the path leading out from the back door. Now the hubby is not a huge fan of mondo grass, so would continually "nag" me that it was not filling in enough, that it would look so much better if it were stone etc. etc. I sort of dug my heels in, even though I agreed with him, but then the other day I realised that what I really had not been anticipating was weeding the mondo grass!
One thing I have noticed is that the two pumpkin patches that have appeared only have male flowers. as I understand it the female ones will have a miniature fruit underneath the flower - or is that only once they are fertilized?
