spring weeds

February 20, 2011 at 6:41 pm (fun, garden) (, )

In California, every thing grows. All the time. However, it is amazing what happens in the winter. Ground that has been dormant for over six months is, after a few days of rain, a foot deep in weeds. Then the fun begins ( I see you DH, but I mean it ) . The sun comes out, and it gets warm enough that you feel compelled to go out side and you weed.  All it takes is slow steady pulling and -pop-  the weed is out of the ground.  In no time you have enough weeds to cover at least 3 dead bodies. If you are lucky, the rain will hold off one more day – and you can do it again .
