Someone said something once that went something along the lines of “Weeds are just plants growing in the wrong place.”
But who the heck gave them squatter’s rights?
Seriously, the image I share here, that’s the current state of my garden.
Now, yes, my garden might be a little bit of overkill. It’s approximately 4,400 sq feet. Add onto that how we are still in the midst of moving into this new place, tearing down some buildings that our insurance company isn’t a fan of, training a new puppy, housetraining a 2-year old, and, you know, just trying to, in general, live our lives…you’ll see that this is an insurmountable task.
You may also see, in the picture, that’ we’ve now given up on actually weeding the entire plot and utilizing plastic to remediate some of the overgrown weeds. My hopes are high, but even this process is going to take way too long to see any real success.
Because weeds are much worse than just plants growing in the wrong place. Weeds are evil demons intent of devouring your soul to ensure that you determine gardening is not something you could ever enjoy.
Weeds are the absolute devil, making everything else in your life have to wait as you deal with these simply unwanted plants who are trying to devour the lifeblood of your fruits and vegetables so as to ensure you will go hungry.
That’s right people, we need to wake up. Weeds aren’t innocent little seeds that fell in the wrong area, weeds are the bullies of the plant kingdom. Actually, bully might be oversimplifying it. They are straight up murderers.
And the best thing I’ve got against them is a big sheet of plastic…
So, today’s post is going to be short. I’ve got some weeds to make pay for their crimes.
Have fun out there!
