Let the Games Begin
Earlier in the week, I got my Burpee catalog so with visions of tomatoes and peppers and some wonderful flowers dancing in my head, I began to plan this year's garden. And then I remembered the nemesis on my premises, the weeds. For over fifteen years, I've been battling the weeds and here's where we stand, now. Weeds - 2 million and ten. Me - Zero. They're horrible and all I have to do is go away for a week and when I return, they've taken over and are almost a foot tall. I've tried weed mats, organic weed sprays, yanking them out the minute they poke their nasty little heads up, and looking at them with evil intentions in mind; and still they win. But this year, I'm going to try something called a weed film, guaranteed to last a lifetime. Now mind you, the weed mat was supposed to last six years. Puleeese, it only took the weeds six weeks to overpower it. But maybe something guaranteed to last a lifetime, might hold up all summer. I'm keeping my fingers crossed and I let you know how it goes.
