Made more room for my "surviving" plants today. Culled the 1066 Holland-2 (Butch), and 1447 Sherwood (Benny) from their respective hills. Harry (1066 Holland-1) and Puddles (1517 Sherwood) made the cut. Used my garden fork to break up the soil in anticipation of the plants to start running in another week or so. The Holland plant wants to stand up and be a tree. The Sherwood plant is starting to lay down and get ready to run. I was pleased to see the number of earthworms that were in the soil. Every turn of the dirt produced another worm that I had to bury. I kept thinking about "Seven Years in Tibet" and how the monks prayed and buried the worms - rather than kill them - when the Dali Lama wanted a movie theater. I really like seeing the little fellows.
