The single most exhausting thing about maintaining a garden...weed pulling.

I know, I know. But they just keep coming, especially the bindweed, the ground elder, the couch grass etc. It's a never-ending task. But, hey ho.

I removed a bunch of weeds from around my garden... the space I had created was the opportunity needed by a *different* invasive weed to take over even worse than the first one had done. /sigh.

I personally don't like weeding, but it comes with the territory when I want to have a healthy garden full of friuts and vegetable. Thanks Cher
