Pachysandra is the Devil's own weed

...with clover a close second. And then there's that spiky green stuff that apparently started out as legit ground cover in the borders by the driveway, but which is now eating half the front lawn. Next time my Aunt Priscilla comes by, I must ask her if she knows what it is, and if there's any way short of a small thermonuclear device to get rid of it.

I don't know--crown vetch is pretty horrible. Dad planted some when we first moved into the "new" house (gah! Nearly 30 years ago now!) and now it's taken over the lawn... the flower beds... the driveway... :-p

I don't *think* I have crown vetch - although, as I've mentioned, it's entirely possible I do & don't know it!

And I take it back - after pulling out 3-foot-high stalks of clover this a.m., THAT'S the Devil's weed. Pachysandra's a very close second.

*gapes* I don't think I've even seen clover that high! *faints*

Well, maybe 2 1/2 feet high.... But you see what I'm up against, then.

Impressive
Damn, I think I'm deeply impressed. I don't think I've ever seen clover that high. And you have to remember, rainy years my weeds get taller than I am (which means we'd have to send out a search party for you.)

*snork* Sometimes I do think I should wear bright clothing out there, just in case I get lost!

Re: Impressive
Carrying a flare might not be a bad idea either. As long as you don't *accidentally* set the yard on fire.

"Accidentally?" Well, it's been suggested that the solution to my weed problem is a flamethrower, so - who knows?
