Some nerve!

Good grief. You leave to do a little grading and looks what sneaks in while you're gone: weeds, weeds, weeds.
Plus! The arugula has gone and bolted on me. What's up with that?

The ingratitude! The blatant disregard for my noble efforts! Sheesh.

It's, mulch for you, weeds.


  1. Yes, weeds don't seem to care about anyone but themselves! So selfish, so opportunistic, so... untrustworthy.

  2. I sometimes wonder how long it would take for my garden to become unrecognisable if I stopped doing it. Weeds have that persistence that leads to success - like squirrels!

  3. Turn your back on them and they start to take over... That's why they're weeds :)

    Now that the rain is done here my weed season is nearly over. Just have to cut down the dry stuff to reduce the fire danger.

  4. Oh no, you can't turn your back for a minute, not even a second, when the temperatures start to rise! And arugula, well, it's just like that. Might have to try planting it a bit earlier, it does go and bolt the second it gets warm. Then again, the flowers are edible and bees probably like them, and the little baby side shoot leaves are yummy too. Enjoy! The arugula, I mean, not the weeds.

  5. I had about 4 inches of mulch in the front garden this year, and a lot of the weeds seemed to appreciate that it held in the moisture. Now maybe it would have been worse without, but I do try not to deviate from the "at least 10 weeds a day" rule. Usually I easily manage 50. I'm sure it keeps me young.

  6. This is my first year for arugula. It bolts? Heavens! I better get busy eating some!

  7. You have a fun sense of humor. It's always nice to smile when reading a garden blog, some blogs are so serious.
    Your blog caught my attention cuz it combines bicycles (my husband's hobby) and gardens (my hobby).
    I am glad to discover your writings.
