I’m Losing My Weed Battle This Summer In Great Falls
Is it just me and my yard, or are weeds in and around Great Falls just insane this year?
Last week, Jason Laird wrote an article about his weed woes, and we ended up talking about our problems for quite awhile. Both of us concluded that we might have to go all out to kill them this year.
Jason Laird's Battle With Weeds
Fast forward to Friday night.
My landlord was over to help me get a glass out of my disposal. (I had a bar glass, heavy on the bottom, that was about a millimeter smaller than my disposal opening, fall right in there and he had to take the disposal apart to get it out. I hate it when I'm the idiot tenant.)
We were chatting, and he says, "I've sprayed those weeds out there twice." And I said, "What? You've sprayed them twice? I've sprayed them twice, too". I asked what he used, as I was planning to go all Round-up on them that weekend. Much to my dismay, he was using Round-up. I TRY not to use Round-up, but there's only so much a girl can take from these nasty weeds. If Round-up didn't work, I was going to take one of those dirty buggers to the co-op and have the guys there tell me how to kill it. That's what a well-raised farmer's daughter would do.
I just KNEW that the weeds I'm battling think weed killer is fertilizer. I'm not even kidding. I SWEAR that they GROW when I try to kill them. I mean, come on, just LOOK at them. They LOVE my weed killer, and evidently they laugh in the face of Round-up.
I'll let you know what we end up using that kills them.
