Schlepping hundreds of pounds of compost and mulch...
Digging halfway to China to find the roots of a stubborn dandelion...
Whoever thinks gardening is 'easy labor' hasn't toiled in my yard.
According to the calorie count website, this hard day's work burned off:
- 3 Big Macs
- 6 Snicker bars
- OR! 10 glasses of wine. (Now you're talkin'... :-)
However! I have found that vinegar works better, safer, cheaper than chemicals. And, they fear to tread where I've done a fine job of amending the soil. So, baby your flowers and at the same time, you'll be babying the Dandelions. To death. :-)
* Dandelions spread 2 ways - airborne seeds and deep roots. Yup, they're perennials, so if you really want to be rid of them, dig up the entire root. And, they bloom twice a year - in spring and autumn - just to keep you on your toes.
