If I may .... a brief interruption from the European adventures.
Today, I went out into the garden to start sowing seeds. I had decided to wait until after vacation to plant ... just in case there was some drought and we didn't get any rain for 2 weeks. I don't know what I was thinking, it rains all the time here.
Anyways, before I left E and I house sit for a couple of boys. The weekend I put them to work in the garden pitting out a million of these.
Caused by these little devils.
My garden and flower beds full over these = EXTREME FRUSTRATION
After a couple hours the boys and I pulled all of the mini tress out of the garden.
When I left for our trip the garden looked great. Perfectly ready for planting.
When I returned ... it was full of this!!!!!!!!
the ground was literally covered!
I spent about an hour today pulling this crap and there is still tons of it.
A lot of the clover patches are so small, that if I got each one I would be be there forever.
And, my even bigger fear is that I will spend the entire summer picking clover patches.
I'm thinking about spaying some type of weed killer and waiting a few days before I sow the seeds.
Does anyone have any advice??
I'm clueless here...
