Weeds And Such

March 14, 2013

Spring has sprung here in the South Bay area.  Actually, things have been blooming for about a month already.  Including weeds in my yard.  We’ve really only landscaped one part of the front of the house so that’s all I really pay attention to.  There’s rocks around the plants, but we never put liner down first so weeks pop up.  I’m paying the price for not keeping up with the weeding during the last couple of months.  Surprise, surprise, now I’m finding the job overwhelming.  I just do not like to do it.  I don’t like worms and bugs and I especially do not spiders.  YUCK.   Anyway, last week I finally decided to get started on the job.  I’m doing it in short bursts, sections at a time.  15 minutes, 30 minutes, whatever time I’ve got.  Today I finished the front of the landscaped part.  Now the “yard” area is bad.  It’s all rocks, but there’s tons of weeds there and I don’t really want to use weed killer (chemicals) and I don’t really want to pull all those weeds which won’t kill them either it will just make it look better.  I’ve still got to figure out what to do there.


Hmmm…  Which part is done, and which part isn’t?



See those green tufts in the rocks?  Weeds.  What is visible in the photo is nothing compared to what you don’t see.  But aren’t my guys cute?

And the backyard.  I can’t even stand it.  We’re going to have the backyard redone this year, but I don’t know what to do in the mean time.  It is out of control.
