Why, oh why, do weeds grow so much faster than plants do? I know I moan about this all the time, but after weeding the top garden last week, and the bottom (one of) garden this week, I’m sick of it!
I think the rain, followed by sun, was the big culprit. Til then, I reckon I was keeping on top of the weeds, but after a day of spring rain, they came out full force. Even the areas we had sprayed with herbicide had weeds (I know, awful stuff, but we do use it in some places). I don’t know how that happens, it shouldn’t be possible!
The weed of the moment is one we call ‘stink weed’ for obvious reasons. It has the worst, kind of fishy, smell to it, that clings to your hand even after washing them. The dogs love to roll in it, again, for obvious reasons!
Anyway, after a tiring day weeding, I think it’s time for a shower, then watching Arsenal – ManU in the second leg of the Champion’s League.
Go you gooners!
