Yum, let's do it again...
I think that summer (whisper) may have arrived here... and not a moment too soon.
I have been trying to untangle all of my garlic from the bind weed that I DESPISE...but the only way to be rid of it is to let the ground lie fallow with black plastic for 2+ years....I just can't do it. I don't have enough land. So, I am left with manually fighting them every year, but I do love my garden!
After seeing my nutty neighbor spraying (I am pretty sure with some variety of Round-up) a 2 inch weed in his vast expanse of bark today...I think that I am going to lose it. He could have just bent down and plucked it out. He doesn't need to add more pollutants to his OVER-FERTILIZED, OVER-HERBICIDED compound.
(Rant start) HELLO---We need to stop using all of these disgusting chemicals all around our bodies and then wondering why people are getting weird auto-immune diseases, cancers, and allergies. It is probably not as simple as that, but it really sickens me to watch MULTITUDES of people out "doing" their yard with the 2 gallon spray bottle of napalm, when all they need to do is get down and PULL THE WEEDY BUGGERS OUT BY THEIR ROOTS!!!
I will leave for another post how this same neighbor gets up on his roof EVERY OTHER DAY to blow off whatever detritus might have fallen in 48 hours....since he cut down 80% of his trees I don't even know what detritus there is left to fall on his roof...
Yes, that is for another post... Maybe if I get really passive-aggressive I can blow dandelion seeds over the fence to spoil his bark and grass patch... but that really isn't the kind of gal I am, but sometimes I wish it was.
