Every few years, the weeds in my yard get away from me. The weeds become my white whale and I become Ahab obsessed with their obliteration.
So far the weeds are winning. I spend thirty minutes every day attempting to tame the wild weeds. After filling the yard waste bin twice, this is as far as I’ve gotten.
Finally there is visible progress, only 10,000 more feet of yard to go. Woohoo!
Unlike Ahab, I am earning Popeye arms. Some sacrifices are worth the effort.
Have you ever gotten behind with your gardening? How did you catch up?
