    I agree, they need to want to be there and not waste your time. I think you handled it great and it sounds like somebody may have learned his lesson! For the more dedicated kids, what a wonderful payoff they will enjoy at the end of the summer. A job well done is its own reward! We'll look forward to seeing pics of the dinner they grew themselves. :cool:

    you should plan a extra credit field trip to journeys place to help pull weeds for a weekend... bet she would give them all the frozen popsicles they want.....

    That would be a whole lot of "are we there yet-s". I am assuming the duct tape would be for covering mouths? :p

    Hey, I'd get them Dairy Queen blizzards and bake 'em cupcakes and probably even have to throw in a pony in exchange for all of these weeds! Some weeds I have are also devilishly prickly and will poke right through your leather gloves. Been meaning to take a pic and get an ID from you guys on those suckers...

    You'd deserve a pony! LOL

    Googled and found my weed -- Spiny Pigweed. Evil barbs beneath each node. Great, now I'm fighting two kinds of pigweed. :barnie That would spoil their love of gardening after about 2.5 seconds. Better keep 'em home.
