My motto Mary bury the weeds under cardboard and wood chips.

That reminds me of a sign my daughter got me for my garden shed. " Gardening the slowest of the performing arts"

Or tree, just sayin'...

CaroleKay Level 8 June 28, 2018

That is funny but also very true.

A few years ago, I had to cut down a redbud that was slowly dying. If I did not thin them out, I would have a Red Bud forest instead of a lawn. There is an area between the edge of the deck in the corner of the house that is landscape fabric covered by landscape rock. I let trees grow there until they are about 2 feet tall, then when I pull them out the roots (which grow on top of the landscape fabric) come out no digging necessary. I can then re-plant the tree elsewhere.

I was just trying to explain to my youngest that a weed is just a plant that is growing were you don't want it.

Yes, tell your son that a weed is like the hair growing out of grandpa's ears. It is hair just like what is growing on the top of your head, it is just growing from a place where no one wants to see it grow. ?

My gardening motto is

Got Milkweed?

Leafhead Level 8 June 28, 2018

I think you should propose that motto for the "Monarch Butterflies and Other Pollinators" group. It's a keeper!

@MikeEC
Thanx.
I hope it doesn't piss off the Dairy Council or whatever. I'd love to have it as a bumper sticker.
I'd like to issue it as a bumper sticker

… And maybe for a mascot, you could take a close-up of a caterpillar with a "milkweed mustache."

@MikeEC
Now that's taking the copyright thing way too far, but I LOVE it!!!

Yes, they are growing around my starw bale garden. I am not disturbing the plants to encourage the butterfly.

@Spinliesel
Good for you 🙂 Thank you for caring and doing your part to bring back the Monarch and it's habitat.

The war against weeds will never be won in my garden . I need a smaller garden .

Besalbub Level 8 June 28, 2018

That is blasphemy!! Gardens should never get smaller! Just wilder.

@HippieChick58 I'm not getting any younger . I will endeavor to persevere .

@HippieChick58

Like people?

@MikeEC LOL!! Yeah, pretty much!

@HippieChick58 ,
Shouldn't that be "wider" like people. ; )

Posted by FernappleWhen is it a plant, when a wildflower and when a weed ?

Posted by ZsterI live in a very hard clay soil area and routinely time my ground work around softening rains.

Posted by LorajayMany of my shrubs look like they may not make it after our 12 days of extreme freezing weather but my Chinese quince is prettier than it's ever been. Perhaps it would prefer a colder climate.
