Tackle Those Weeds

I Wish It Was That Easy

Then we would have more control

Weeds have a way of popping up in the strangest of places

They never need watering

If by chance you happen to sprinkle a little of that lovely water

You will see how fast they grow

It's like one weed told another

Then they bring every relative and friend

Many people think of weeds as the enemy

I think of them more like an annoying friends

They have no bad intentions

They just get under your skin

In this case in the soil with the vegetable garden and flowers

I wish there was a weed pie

Where I could add all my weeds

Then enjoy them as well

Some don't come up easy

Others come right back

Like they never left

Some weeds produce nice color

Other weeds are strong as rope

Twisting in and out

After an hour of weeding

I had enough

My hands started to cramp and I can feel it in my lower back

Weeds you got the best of me now

Tomorrow I'll be back

That's when I'm going to run you out of town

If only our vegetable and flower seedlings had the strength and stubborness of those weeds. Id there a life's lesson to be learned from these never-ending pests? I wonder. Great interpretation here about how weeds plague us!

Vocal coach I have to laugh if not I would cry. My grass is overrun by weeds. Last year it was grubs. If I cut it short enough it looks green and full from a distance. With lack of rain the grass looks dry and dead in some spots where the weeds look vibrant and alive. Thank you for your wonderful comments. Have a cool Wednesday.

Well spoken Michel, crediting Weeds by compliment keeping us busy while they are plaguing the earth "all the days of our life." Is an ongoing process pulling them out and if torn roots remain in the soil, soon they come back. Keeping us busy - overtime. Some lesson I learned by using a mattock, digging as deep as needed to get out a root totaly. When asked why is necessary go so deep, my traditional answer is "weeds are as any other sin, if a root is not destroyed, it will come back." ( a holy communion is temporarry fix vs. repentasnce.) ""Oops I am sorry for saying this.""

Michael-Milec The weeds keep me thinking. Maybe they were put on this earth to give us good exercise. Keeping us in shape while we keep reaching and bending all the time. Wouldn't that be humorous twist. I also have plenty of time to think. I think it is medatitive and therapeutic at the same time. Thanks for reading and adding to life's world of thought.

Hope you can conquer those weeds. You think you got problems. We're cutting off the large leaves on the pumpkins so that the growing pumpkins can develop and grow big. The problem is that many of the pumpkin vines have been growing like crazy and have a death grip on a lot of weeds growing beneath them. They just won't let go so the weed cannot be pulled out.

Good exercise indeed; we are 'hanging' on our lower back, other position knelling on one or both knees, not to mention carrying a heavy pile of dead weeds...Due to simplicity of procedure our thinking faculties a free to travel million miles distance into the world of true phantasy where the supply of ideas waiting to be discovered and translated into messages of reality.

Gypsy Rose Lee Wow how many pumpkins do you have growing? I went out to weed some more and I didn't mind thinking of how much easier I have it. Thanks for sharing and maybe a friend will help you and make your job more fun and you can both have a good laugh. Michael-Milec I love when my creative juices are flowing. Even if my back is aching . I know my body is in better health for weeding. I just have to do a little and not over do it. Thank you for reading and sharing.

There is more to it Michael, much more; the medical science revealed that working in the garden three to six hours a day has 'cured' eliminated up to 50% of psychological disorder/confusion/oppression in just a six months.

Michael-Milec When I am outside in the garden I become one with nature. Digging in the soil. All my senses come alive. I see something so rich that covers the earth and yet people disregard and ignore it's beauty. Out in the fresh air and finding bugs or worms that I didn't even know existed to a minute ago. It's my own world within a world. Thank you for sharing amazing facts I didn't know. Have a great Saturday.

Right now we have at lest six pumpkins on the way to full growth. They seem to expand day by day. I am curious to see how it will all look by the end of September.
