Mow, mow, mow your yard . . .
Yard, Weeds

. . . day two of the annual Spring Mow-a-thon and I wish somebody would explain to me, in a way that makes sense, why I thought it was a good thing to have yard that's over 1/3 acre.  There's a weed back there that's actually taller than me.  We'd lose Jenni if she went back there.

Heh. Gotta post a picture of my bamboo. Then I've got to call the Bronx Zoo & see if they'll loan me a panda. :-P

Last year my yard was overrun by clover. This year it's oxalis, which is at least prettier than clover - but still a weed.

Maybe a goat to go with the panda?

A goat might be nice. If my sister wasn't a complete selfish bitch she would have kept one of hers when she moved out of the country in case I needed one. But does she ever think of anyone else? Noooo.

And my rototiller decided to out spinning. *scowl*



And I hate puncture vines, which have cropped up in four different large patches in my yard.


I'm not sure I know what puncture vines are, but from the sound of them, that's a good thing.

Benny the landscaper stopped by earlier & he's going to come tomorrow, seed & fertilize the lawn, & nuke the oxalis in the front yard. Mom won't let him put down chemicals in the back because of the dog (and - hello! *I* spend a lot of time out there, too!), so it looks like I'm gonna have to keep digging. He says we need to get a tree guy in for the bamboo, though.

They look kind of like clover, only with STICKERS. Nasty, sharp, painful stickers.

I need a landscaper. Someone who will make my yard drain into the new neighbor's out in back (they've been throwing their cigarette butts in my yard. I am not amused.) If they don't watch it next year I'd going to put a big mosquito pond out there (it's a block from my actual house. I'll plant cintronella in between.)

Good luck with the bamboo. I remember how it took over the canal by our house when I was a kid.
