Well, it’s been a while since I last blogged—the couch has been quite comfy lately and I seem to fall asleep on it as soon as my butt hits the cushion. But tonight I came to the computer before the couch—small victories.
Speaking of victories, I’m hoping that my last weekend’s labors result in a victory. It seems as if the entire Grand Island dandelion population took up residence in my garden. Since I don’t have a rotor tiller, and didn’t seem to be borrowing one anytime soon, spade in hand I initiated my attack.
Since I know that dandelions will regenerate if you don’t get their entire root, I dug and pulled and dug and pulled for two afternoons…
…until victory was mine…I hope.
I pulled up all the edging since it was mostly buried and more a lawnmower hazard than a decorative border, but I plan to put it back in to actually serve a non-hazardous purpose. I managed to pull up a CATV cable as well (?). It’s purpose remains a mystery.
Time will tell who the victor was, but boy do I hope it’s me.
