Battling the Weeds

I wage constant war upon the weeds, or rather, they wage war upon me.  I tell myself that no matter what, I am going to devote such and such day to weeding . . . and then the peas need to be harvested . . . and the rose needs to be transplanted . . . and, well, you get the idea.

Strangely enough, even though autumn is one of the most hectic times of year, I am finally gaining some ground against the weeds.  It is most likely a short-lived reprieve, however.   Soon enough, they will rally their troops and press forward once again.

What do you do to win the battle against weeds?  Or do you continuously lose ground against them like I do?

    Trouble is, they’ve already seeded themselves, so weeding now is just getting rid of the carcasses. Makes things look better though.

    I guess getting dandelion up by the roots is progress. This year I ended the year with fewer weeds than I started. That’s progress!

      Yeah. I’m trying to ignore that part. I probably shouldn’t be putting the weeds in the compost pile as well, for the same reason, but I don’t have the room or time for a more complicated system.

    In Minnesota, we don’t see weeds again until May. Really, we don’t see anything green until about then, so some weeds would be welcome.

      Jeff, I can’t even imagine that, having lived in and around a rain forest my entire life.

      I bet you get a lot more snow than we do, though. We are lucky enough to get enough of a dusting to scrape together a pathetic looking snowman.
