My Biggest Battle Of The Summer Trying to Get Rid Of The Weeds In My Yard
So one of my newest hobbies is working in my yard. It amazes me because never before have I ever cared about yard work. The most effort I ever put into it was paying someone to mow. Now I look so forward to working in the yard. I try to do something out there every day. Usually it consists of water my plants and pulling weeds.
I didn't realize pulling weeks was such hard work. The first time I did, I was so sore the next day. The backs of my legs where so sore.
I have this wisteria bush in yard and it growing nicely. The other day I looked out there and there were these big tall weeds out there, growing in the middle of it. I had to by some clippers to get these weeds out.
These things grown like crazy and the biggest thickest stalks I have ever seen. Last night while trying to remove this pest, I had to cut the weed stalk in pieces first. You would have thought I was pulling up a tree root. Then I had to soak the ground and did the root out there was no way I could pull it out. In fact, I almost broke my little garden trouble trying to get it out.
Here is a picture of it. Do any of you know what this is or how I can totally get rid of them? This is just the root, you have seen how big the stalk was.
I try to stay on top of them but they are huge before I know it.
