We inherited a lot of liriope, aka monkey grass or creeping lilyturf, when we first moved into our house over 15 years ago. As you can imagine, it has grown and spread like crazy and now covers way too much of the garden. To get rid of it, you have to dig it up. The root system is amazing.
I do, however, love the pretty blueish purple flowers in the summer.
So Galen is digging up the liriope along the back fence near our veggie garden. This will mean more space for veggies this summer.
I am already planning the veggie garden and ways to use the new space. I hope to get a lot more out of the garden this coming year!
