I love the rain! So does the garden!
So do the weeds. It was time to do some serious weeding.
I pulled the big weeds right out of the rain-soft ground. I’ve found there’s actually an art to pulling weeds with the entire rootstalk intact. And I really get into the challenge of seeing how many weeds I can pull out whole.
The kids jumped right in. Logan gathered the weeds I’d pulled and Kaia played in the mud.
On the smaller weeds we used straight white vinegar, which is, as I’ve said before, the edible version of Round Up.
And by edible I mean, if you get a bit peckish while your weeding just grab some lettuce, apply a little of your weed killer, and voilà! instant salad.
It’s weird: a project can look massive and onerous, but once I get rolling it’s done in half the time AND I end up enjoying it. Or maybe that’s just me—made half crazy from all the vinegar.
P.S. I also wanted to demonstrate my awesome weed-pulling skillz with an animated gif, but the site that would have allowed me to do that suffered a server crash, so…another time!
