I am an inconstant gardener: I alternate periods of activity in my little vegetable garden to periods of neglect. The excuse for the latter is usually bad weather and since we had plenty of it in March and April, currently portions of my garden are in need of attention.
One thing that happened during the weeks when wind and rain made work outside unappealing, is that poppies took over the section where a few months ago I planted some rainbow chards. The poppy seeds were in my compost pile, so their distribution is unplanned. While I want some poppies in my garden, first for the flowers and then to harvest the seeds, I am not interested in turning my garden over to them, so I had to uproot some. I feel really bad when I have to get rid of a plant, especially if it is not, strictly speaking, a weed.
The compost pile contains also dill seeds, so I have a few plants of the fragrant herb here and there. In the early morning light, the dewy leaves are a nice subject for a photo.
This is my contribution to edition #30 of Black and White Wednesday - A Culinary Photography Event created by Susan of The Well-Seasoned Cook and hosted this week by Brii of briggishome.
The photo was shot in color and then converted to sepia.
