    So many weeds suddenly showed up...spent 2hrs ripping most of them out. Got a picture of some possible 5 linked skink eggs that I found while weeding and then the rain suddenly showed up.

    And yes, there is a pink tint to them. 20160712_185909.jpg

    I hate grass was the headline. I'm a few pages behind on this thread, but I had to post.

    In Coeur D'Alene ID for a few days visiting one of DH's older bros. There is so much green here, including sumptuous grass, that I laid down on it for an hour. It smells great, felt great, and I laid there in the green with my eyes closed and ears open for almost an hour, listening to living sounds. I love grass cus its green.

    I should of spent the money on concrete pavers instead of mulch....I'm so tired of weeding! =/
    At this point, you can't even see the mulch or other plants!

    You have to weed the space between pavers

    As I've mentioned in the past, I am not a purist. I am not totally against chemical solutions in areas away from my food stuffs. I use chemical solutions as sparingly as possible where beneficials tend to do their work, but between cracks in the pavers/sidewalks, a chemical solution beats laying on my tummy digging weeds out with a butter knife and having the neighbor lady (not mine of course) call 911.

    Lol!
    Yeah, weeding between cracks is so much better than weeding the whole yard! =0
    I've been so much more busy this year with new aheep, puppies, new land and fencing it, flooding and some other things I'm forgetting that I have had almost no time to weed enough to keep on top of it.

    I agree Red I now put crossbow mixture in empty mustard bottle with long tip. Gets right into space between pavers.
